Actors Sanaa Lathan and Michael Ealy have been fixtures in Hollywood for nearly two decades. Audiences have watched the two evolve as actors as they’ve moved freely through comedy, drama and romance in both television and film—The Following, About Last Night, Barbershop and Think Like a Man for him, and Boss, The Best Man franchise,Love and Basketball, and Brown Sugar for her. Their consistent performances, gorgeous looks and bankable box office has helped to secure their artistic space in an industry that can sometimes be fickle and precarious for African-American actors.
“Comparing our film to an exceptional film like Fatal Attraction is a real compliment to us because that was one of the films that was an inspiration for us,” says Lathan. “It’s a classic suspense, [a] sexy thriller that really shocked the world when it came out. It was done so well, so that set the bar for us.”
Lathan and Ealy’s ability to work together in front of and behind the camera is on full display as they finish each other’s sentences and use words like “we” and “us” when interviewed about the film. Roughly four years ago, Executive Producer Clint Culpeper pitched the script to Lathan over dinner, and she loved it.
