Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington is set to star in the romantic comedy 'Is He The One'.

According to, the 37-year-old actress is set to take on the lead role in the romantic comedy after MGM acquired the rights to the film.

Company bosses and the raven-haired beauty are now said to be brokering a deal for her to take on the main character, a bride-to-be - who is seen dressing for her wedding day in between flashbacks of her past relationships - leaving the audience guessing who will be at the end of the altar.

The movie will be directed by Malcolm D. Lee - who previously helmed 'The Best Man' and 'The Best Man Holiday' - with a script penned by DJ Richardson and Michelle Morgan.

Tod Garner has also signed up to produce the picture.

Kerry previously appeared in 'Django Unchained' and stars in the Emmy Award-winning TV show 'Scandal'.

The pretty actress recently admitted she almost gave up the role in the drama series while debating whether to make the jump from movies onto the small screen after landing a role in the Quentin Tarrantino-directed picture.

She said: "At first I thought, 'Why would I want to do a TV show, I have a flourishing movie career?' But it's so rare that we see a woman on top of the story that the more I read of the scripts, the more I was hooked into it."
