Photos of the upcoming film Southside With You, a dramedy about President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama’s first date, set social media ablaze Tuesday.
The photos, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, show Have and Have Nots actress Tika Sumpter as a young Michelle Robinson, and actor Parker Sawyers as law associate Barack Obama. The film centers around the couple’s 1989 first date, which according to the duo’s story, features the president taking Michelle to see Do The Right Thing in an effort to impress her. They also went on a trip to the Art Institute of Chicago, followed by a kiss outside of an ice cream parlor.
Directed by budding filmmaker Richard Tanne, it also includes producers from Soul Food and Fruitvale Station.
Southside With You is currently in the early stages of filming.
