Taraji P. Henson to Star in Baggage Claim


Black Voices reports that Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, upcoming The Karate Kid) is in talks to star in writer/director/producer David E. Talbert’s Baggage Claim at Fox Searchlight Pictures.

The film, based on Talbert’s 2005 novel, is about a single flight attendant who jets around the country in search of a husband.

The story centers on the thirty-something Montana Moore, who, frustrated with being single, embarks on a 30-day, 30,000-mile barnstorm across America to find an appropriate suitor. Along the way she encounters several interested prospects, including a preacher, a politician and a tycoon.
