'Baggage Claim' Director Sought Taye Diggs, Morris Chestnut And Djimon Hounsou For Upcoming Comedy Film

It looks as though Baggage Claim is shaping up a pretty decent cast and may be the next urban classic to hit the theaters.

Playwright/director David E. Talbert’s has recently extended invitations to Taye Diggs, Morris Chestnut, Trey Songz, Lauren London, Tia Mowry and Djimon Hounsou to join his upcoming Baggage Claim comedy.

Baggage Claim, which already has Paula Patton, Derek Luke, and Octavia Spencer on board, will see Patton star as Montana Moore, a 35 year old unmarried flight attendant who is on a mission. After her baby sister gets engaged, Montana realizes that she is the oldest of her siblings and the only one who hasn’t yet tied the knot. Subsequently, she gives herself a 30 day or 30,000 mile time slot to find herself a fiance.

Four different men are in the running:

“Damon Diesel (a P. Diddy wannabe); Reverend Curtis P. Merewether (pastor of Greater House of Deliverance, Tabernacle of Praise, Worship, and Miracles); pompous attorney-turned-councilman Langston Jefferson Battle III; or Quinton Jamison (a multimillionaire who’s twenty years her senior).”

At this time, it’s unknown which roles would be assigned to other new cast members in Baggage Claim, assuming they all sign on. Two weeks ago, Kevin Hart and Terrance Howard both were also offered positions in the movie.

Baggage Claim is slated to start shooting later this month.
