I saw Blindspotting last year at Sundance and found that while the film is somewhat muddled tonally, it grew on me more the further I got away from it. A large part of that is simply the chemistry shared by its stars and writers Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal.
So the idea that they are coming back to star in another film together is very welcome. According to Deadline, Diggs and Casal will reteam for First Sight, which is interestingly being described as a sci-fi romantic comedy. The plot has something to do with finding the love of your life in your dreams. That’s about as different from Blindspotting as you can get.
Perhaps even more interesting is that Casal himself will write and direct this one. There isn’t much more in the way of further details yet, but for those who saw and enjoyed Blindspotting when it came out in July, this is an eye-opening bit of news. I’m excited to see how it goes.
