Fox Picks Up Talbert’s Baggage

Fox Searchlight will produce and finance David Talbert’s “Baggage Claim” says The Hollywod Reporter.

“Baggage” centers on the thirtysomething single flight attendant Montana Moore, who, frustrated with being single, embarks on a 30-day, 30,000-mile barnstorm across America to find an appropriate suitor.

Along the way she encounters several interested prospects, including a preacher, a politician and a tycoon. Talbert (“First Sunday”) will write, direct and produce the movie based on his 2005 novel.

Casting is under way for the prestrike project, which Searchlight hopes to shoot ahead of a potential actors strike in the summer.
