DEADLINE is reporting that Everything, Everything director Stella Meghie has cast comedic actor and my fraternity brother Tone Bell, She’s Gotta Have It actress DeWanda Wise and former SNL star Sasheer Zamata in a new comedy titled The Weekend.

The film centers on an acerbic comedian (Zamata) who goes away for the weekend with an ex-boyfriend (Bell) and his new girl (Wise). Over the course of the weekend, they’re drawn into an unexpected romantic entanglement with the arrival of another guest (Y’lan Noel Insecure). Comedic actress Kym Whitley rounds out the cast.

The Weekend is being produced and financed by Marada Pictures’ Sarah Lazow and James Gibb. It is also being produced by Stephanie Allain, Mel Jones and Josh Bachove.

Stay tuned…
