It looks like the Hawkins Brothers are on their way. The team of Zeke and Simon Hawkins have wrapped their first film. Featured at the Toronto Film Festival as “We Gotta Get Out of This Place,” “Bad Turn Worse,” hits theaters on November 14th.
Chris Rock is presently shooting his new film “Finally Famous.” Starring Kevin Hart, Rosario Dawson, Gabrielle Union and Rock, it’s said to be an edgy showbiz-themed comedy with romance. Given the Hart/ Rock combo, in addition to the talents of J.B. Smoove, Sherri Shepherd, Romany Malco and rising starlet Haley Marie Norman, I anticipate lots of laughs. “Finally Famous” is Rock’s third direction, following his features “Head of State” and “I Think I Love My Wife.”
BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL! That used to be a popular phrase. One that still holds true for me, it doesn’t for a multitude of people… from the land where the black man — the first man — began. Bill Duke and D. Channsin Berry are the directors of “Dark Girls.” Airing on OWN, it premiered last night, I don’t see any future air dates — but you can get all the details and see portions of the film on it’s official site: http://officialdarkgirlsmovie.com
