Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired worldwide rights to A Boy. A Girl. A Dream, the Qasim Basir-directed movie starring Power‘s Omari Hardwick and Meagan Good that premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. No release date has been set.
The Los Angeles-set drama penned by Basir and Samantha Tanner revolves around a Los Angeles club promoter (Hardwick) who on the night of the 2016 Presidential election meets a woman (Good) who challenges him to revisit his broken dreams. It’s all set against the backdrop of Donald Trump overtaking Hilary Clinton in the course of the evening.
Jay Ellis, Dijon Talton, Wesley Jonathan and Affion Crockett co-star in the pic, produced by Datari Turner. Jash’d Belcher, Louis Steyn, TJ Steyn, Jamal Chilton, Tim Weatherspoon, Phil Thornton, Good and Hardwick are executive producers.
The deal was negotiated by Samuel Goldwyn’s Meg Longo and CAA, Turner, and attorney Linda Lichter on behalf of the filmmakers.
