ON

Variety says that Forest Whitaker, America Ferrera and Carlos Mencia have signed on to star in an untitled family wedding project for Fox Searchlight.

Rick Famuyiwa (Brown Sugar) is directing the film from a screenplay he wrote.

Described as a clash-of-cultures comedy, the story centers on two overbearing fathers (Whitaker, Mencia) who must put aside their differences to plan the wedding of their son and daughter (Ferrera) in less than two weeks.

Filming begins next month in Los Angeles.
