Long, known mostly for her roles in films such as Love Jones, Friday, The Best Man, Boiler Room, The Single Moms Club, and Roxanne Roxanne, will produce the movie, as Deadline reports.

Directed by Peter Sullivan, Stephen Bishop will also star in Fatal Affair, while the script is co-written by Sullivan and Rasheeda Garner.
