Cultures will clash for America Ferrara

america-ferraraAccording to Variety, America Ferrara will be starring in a culture clash comedy for Fox Searchlight wherein her father (who will be played by Carlos Mencia) will have to duel with her fiance’s father (played by Forest Whitaker) over the last-minute wedding plans.

Written by Rick Famuyiwa (Brown Sugar, The Wood), the film is set to be directed by him as well, and I do hope that this movie will be filmed with the same amount of care as those other two films.

I’m not sure how Gordon feels about this, but I’ve always hoped that the more and longer we have non-Caucasian actors and actresses on movie screens, the closer we will get to a point where people won’t be making terrible casting decisions when trying to make movies about non-Caucasians.

Let’s hope that this untitled movie, set to start filming next month in Los Angeles, won’t set my dreams back.

    The only thing I think about this is that Carlos Mencia is not funny. At all.
