While Billy Porter is currently working on the making of his first film, What If ? for MGM, Amazon Studios has already ordered another feature film from him. This is a comedy for teenagers, also in the LGBT + universe. This film is provisionally titled To Be Real and is described as at the crossroads of Superbad and Booksmart, as noted Variety.

The original screenplay, written by Ryan Shiraki (On My Block), follows the journey of three queer friends who leave their hometowns to attend Pride in New York. The project will be produced, among others, by the company of actress Gabrielle Union, I’ll Have Another.

The past few months have been busy for Billy Porter, who makes his first appearance on the other side of the camera with What If ?. This first production project is a drama based on a script by Alvaro Garcia Lecuona. The plot follows the love story between a senior high school student in her final year and a transgender girl from her school.

If he becomes a filmmaker, Billy Porter does not give up his acting career and will be one of Cinderella’s good fairies in the next adaptation for Amazon studios. In addition, the star could well win a second Emmy Awards for his role as Pray Tell in the series. Pose by Ryan Murphy next month.

Billy Porter also revealed this year that he had been HIV positive for 14 years and had to keep his illness a secret so as not to hamper his career.
