It appears this is our first time writing about Screen Gems thriller THE PERFECT GUY, which sounds like it could seriously be called OBSESSED 2. You remember that awful picture with Idris Elba, Beyonce and Ali Larter. Yeah well peep the premise of THE PERFECT GUY to see what I mean:
In the film, Leah Vaughn (Sanaa Lathan) appears to have the ideal life. She enjoys a challenging, fast-paced career as a lobbyist; Dave (Morris Chestnut), her long-term boyfriend loves her. And yet, at 36, she's ready to move to the next phase. Marriage and a family seem a logical and welcome step. Dave is not so sure. A bit commitment phobic, his misgivings lead to a painful break up.
Enter Carter Duncan (Michael Ealy), a handsome, charming stranger whose path keeps crossing with Leah's. Caring and solicitous of Leah and her family and friends, their relationship rapidly progresses. It seems Leah has met the perfect guy. But if it seems too good to be true... Soon Carter's protective nature morphs into something more sinister. It's clear Leah has to end this new relationship and when she does, her onetime lover becomes her ultimate enemy. It will take every bit of her cunning and resolve to escape and outwit him.
Absolutely dreadful, right? So obviously a wannabe FATAL ATTRACTION, but far more aligned with sure to be so-bad-it's-good OBSESSED.
Anyway, Deadline is reporting today that Kathryn Morris (pictured) has just been added to the cast of THE PERFECT GUY. Morris will play Karen, the mother of an all-boys family who is a close confidante of Lathan’s character and offers counsel and wisdom about her romances.
Directed by David Rosenthal, from a Tyger Williams script - THE PERFECT GUY also stars Rutina Wesley, Holt McCallany, Jeff Davis, Sarah Domin, Duncan Joiner and Julia Larson. Look for it drop sometime in 2015.
