Production is underway in Vancouver, B.C., on Revolution Studios' "Little Man," a comedy directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans
and starring Marlon Wayans
, Shawn Wayans
, Kerry Washington
and Tracy Morgan
. The film will be released by Columbia Pictures over the Memorial Day weekend on May 26, 2006.
In the hilarious comedy, Shawn Wayans plays a man so anxious to become a father that he mistakes a short-statured, baby-faced thief on the run, played by Marlon Wayans, for an abandoned toddler. He and his wife, played by Kerry Washington, take the "baby" into their home and care for him. The "baby's" partner-in-crime in a jewelry store heist, played by Tracy Morgan, tries to break him out and recover a stolen diamond.
The original screenplay was written by the three Wayans brothers.
