The beginning of the relationship between President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama is being turned into a movie called Southside With You, with The Haves And The Have Nots actress Tika Sumpter playing Michelle back when she was known as Michelle Robinson. According to Deadline.com:

“‘Southside With You’, a drama in the vein of ‘Before Sunrise’, chronicles the summer 1989 afternoon when the future President of the United States of America wooed his future First Lady on an epic first date across Chicago’s South Side.”

The role of a much younger Barack Obama has yet to be cast. Southside With You will be directed by Richard Tanne, with filming to begin in July on location in Chicago.
