Guess what, everyone!  Carlos Mencia is finally getting that starring movie role he so richly deserves!

Forest Whitaker, America Ferrera and Carlos Mencia have signed on to star in an untitled family wedding project for Fox Searchlight. Rick Famuyiwa (“Brown Sugar”) is directing the pic from a screenplay he penned. Described as a clash-of-cultures comedy [Shocking –Ed.], story centers on two overbearing fathers (Whitaker, Mencia) who must put aside their differences to plan the wedding of their son and daughter (Ferrera) in less than two weeks.

Mencia’s last role was a bit part in Heartbreak Kid in which he proved he can’t even do a convincing Mexican accent, so I’m sure he’ll do fine opposite an Oscar winner.  I mean, look at this picture. I didn’t even have to Photoshop that.
