Somebody Needs to Write an IR Movie About…


Something New was released in 2006 on 1265 theater screens, had a 5 week run and grossed $11.5 million worldwide.

Five years later and there hasn’t been many interracial mainstream films (specifically romantic comedies) put out by the studios.

So, if you were able to have a wish granted (or greenlight movies) for the kind of flick you’d like to see starring a bw and a wm, what would it be about? What genre would it be in? Who would you envision for the casting and what would the lesson be?

Break out your inner writer! Tv series ideas are welcome too!

    More ideas to come but the message of the film/tv series should be that love is not nor should it be restricted. It is a gift and in order to love, one has to be open to love not just looking or expecting love within one’s race but knowing that love is unexpected and can happen between two unlikely pairs.

      I know right! I’m kind of guessing this is why we haven’t seen so many similarly themed romantic comedies since then. Maybe if it had grossed more money…?
