Octavia Spencer Joins ‘Baggage Claim’

Octavia Spencer joins Baggage Claim Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer has joined the cast of Baggage Claim for Fox Searchlight Pictures and writer-director David E. Talbert.

We reported in May that Paula Patton will star as Montana Moore, a single flight attendant who is the oldest, unmarried woman in her family. She goes on a cross-country trek to find a husband in 30 days, before her younger sister gets hitched. No details were given regarding Octavia Spencer's character. Derek Luke is also starring in an unspecified role.

David E. Talbert (First Sunday) is directing from his own screenplay, which he adapted from his novel of the same name. Production is slated to begin in September.

Since winning an Oscar for her supporting performance in The Help, Octavia Spencer has shot the thriller Snow Piercer with Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton, and the Untitled Diablo Cody Project with Julianne Hough and Russell Brand.

Baggage Claim was released September 27th, 2013.
