‘Broom’ sweeps up cast

Alonso joins Patton and Bassett in Sony film

Laz Alonso will star opposite Paula Patton and Angela Bassett in the Sony pic “Jumping the Broom.”

Helmed by Salim Akil, the romantic comedy focuses on a weekend wedding in Martha’s Vineyard where two families of different socioeconomic backgrounds clash during their first meeting before the event.

The cast is rounded off by Mike Epps, Loretta Devine and Romeo Miller.

The script was penned by Arlene Gibbs and Elizabeth Hunter, who will also produce with T.D. Jakes, Curtis Wallace, Tracey Edmonds and Glendon Palmer.

One of Variety’s 10 Actors to Watch in 2009, Alonso will also topline the skein “Breakout Kings,” which A&E recently picked up after Fox passed on the pilot.
