The film Barry, which tells the story of a young Barack Obama as a college student in New York City, has cast its titular role.

Devon Terrell and Anya Taylor-Joy have been cast in the leading roles in the project, and they will begin shooting at the end of this month.

Production begins on Barry a month after Southside With You, which told the story of the first date between Barack and Michelle Obama, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. It will be interesting to compare the two portrayals of the younger versions of our current president when both projects are completed.
