Kerry Washington will play a bride-to-be in the upcoming romantic comedy “Is He The One,” an individual familiar with the project confirmed to TheWrap.
The MGM project begins with Washington’s character dressing for her wedding and ends on her making her way towards the altar where her groom awaits. Who is at the end of the aisle will remain a mystery as the movie flashes back to three separate relationships that the lead character has had.
