Kiersey Clemons & Leon Bridges Say I Do to Tayarisha Poe’s “The Young Wife”

Kiersey Clemons & Leon Bridges Say I Do to Tayarisha Poe’s “The Young Wife”

American indie helmer Tayarisha Poe is moving from school courtyards of Selah And The Spades to the courting period before officially tying the knot with her sophomore project. Deadline reports that Kiersey Clemons will topline and be surrounded by musician Leon Bridges, Judith Light, Michaela Watkins, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Kelly Marie Tran, Connor Paolo, Aida Osman, Aya Cash, Lukita Maxwell, Sandy Honig, Brandon Micheal Hall, and Jon Rudnitsky on The Young Wife. Production began in Savannah, GA and it’s being produced by FilmNation and Archer Gray.

Gist: This is about a woman (Kiersey Clemons) who grapples with the meaning of love and commitment in the face of an uncertain and tumultuous world. A sunny day panic attack and a wholly new take on the wedding film, the movie follows her over the course of her ‘non-wedding’ day.

Worth Noting: Clemons will next be seen in indie projects Somebody I Used to Know and Susie Searches.
