The film is being produced by acclaimed producer, Monty Ross, who has produced films like “She’s Gotta Have It,” “Do The Right Thing” and “Malcolm X.”

When asked about her thoughts on landing the leading role in “My First Loves,” Vanessa said: “I fell in love with the very candid story of one girls quest in life to find true love, a story I can relate to quite well.”

“My First Loves” is scheduled to begin production this summer in Atlanta, GA and New York City with hopes to take advantage of NY State and Georgia State Tax Credit benefits, as well as support New York City’s Made In NY Reel Jobs opportunities to employ locally.
