Issa Rae teams up with Kumail Nanjiani for a new romantic comedy titled Lovebirds, DJ Khaled is joining Bad Boys 3, and the trailer for Fast Color features three generations of black women with superpowers. Get it all inside...

Listen, Issa Rae is taking over Hollywood on the big screen, the small screen, and even behind-the-scenes.

For her next project, the "Insecure" star/creator is teaming up with "The Big Sick" star Kumail Nanjiani for a romantic comedy, picked up by Paramount Pictures, that will highlight an interracial couple trying to finesse their way out of a murder.

Entertainment Weekly serves up the deets on the upcoming rom-com:

The script will see Rae and Nanjiani play a couple close to breaking up, who find themselves caught in a bizarre but funny murder mystery which they attempt to solve in order to clear their names, while also examining if they and their relationship can survive the circumstances. Nanjiani’s Big Sick director, Michael Showalter, will helm the film, and the script is penned by Aaron Abrams, Brendan Gall, and Martin Gero. The film will go into production at the end of the month and is co-produced and co-financed by MRC.

The news comes on the heels of the LITTLE trailer being released, which stars Issa, Regina Hall and Marsai Martin. In case you missed, check it out HERE.

The "Insecure" honcho also inked a multi-production deal with Columbia Pictures. Under the agreement, Issa's ColorCreative production company will be backing projects from emerging, diverse screenwriters. She has also signed a first-look development deal to create two more shows (with one of them already in the works) for HBO.

Booked & Busy!
