The story of President Obama‘s first date with First Lady Michelle Obama is very close to making it to the big screen.

Reportedly, Miramax and Roadside Attractions are close to finalizing a deal for the North American rights of the film, called Southside With You, for around $2 million. According to Deadline.com:

The hope is to release in the summer, and the expectation is that it will have strong appeal with African-American and art house audiences.

Southside With You stars Tika Sumpter and Parker Sawyers in the roles of Barack and Michelle Obama, and was filmed last summer on location in Chicago.
