BET’s “Sistas” & “Zatima” Star Devale Ellis is currently filming a brand new Netflix film with the talented and beautiful Christina Milian!!
The Netflix rom-com will be titled Meet Me Next Christmas.
In the film, Milian portrays the role of Layla, a young woman who races through New York City to get tickets for the sold-out Pentatonix Christmas Eve Concert all in the hopes of nabbing the man of her dreams.
The film will be directed by Rusty Cundieff and written by Molly Haldeman and Camilla Rubis. Meet Me Next Christmas marks Milian’s third collaboration with Netflix. Mark Roberts produces the project, while Milian executive produces alongside Simon Lythgoe and Matt Code.
The film will also star Kofi Siriboe, Kalen Allen and Pentatonix.
Devale and Christina are finally on set and shared a post about their first days.
“My whole life is a Rom Com… Time to deliver. 😏😂🤷🏾♂️
“One and Done. 🎬
Just got home from a great 1st day on set. It’s cold out so I’m looking for a good place to pick up a cup of tea.. any suggestions? #Toronto”
We can’t wait to see the new film later this year.
Until then, you can catch Devale on BET+ for “Zatima” Season 2.
“Zac and Fatima’s relationship is challenged on a whole new level” in Season 2. “Zac deals with internal discord which is only exacerbated after seeing his mother, Gladys, whom he hasn’t seen in quite a long time. Fatima begins to question herself and if she’s really what Zac needs when she can’t get through to him about dealing with past issues.”
Zatima‘s cast includes Devale Ellis as Zac, Crystal Renee Hayslett as Fatima, Cameron Fuller as Nathan, Remington Hoffman as Bryce, Nzinga Imani as Angela, Jasmin Brown as Deja, Guyviaud Joseph as Tony, Danielle LaRoach as Belinda and Marquita Goings as Valerie.
