This Might Be Good....


I'm posting this cause I genuinely like what Malcolm Lee tries to do in film, as I stated before. From AOL:

One of the few Black directors who usually gets work is Malcolm Lee. His latest gig is 'Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins', which stars Martin Lawrence, Mo'Nique, and Joy Bryant, comes out next year, and he's just been assigned another feature starring Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac.

According to Variety, Dimension Films has set Lee to direct "Soul Men," a road trip comedy starring Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac as bickering backup soul singers who haven't spoken in 20 years but reluctantly travel cross country together for a tribute concert to honor their famous former band leader.


From IW: Sounds like a good premise and a good match up between Jackson and Mac...I just hope Jackson keeps it down to 5 decibels and is not chewing up the scenery....

i've always enjoyed malcolm lee's work. from directorial debut with "the best man", his work is beginning to stand out from the shadow of his renaissance filmmaker cousin, spike lee.

IW-you're right about Sam! His intensity is wondeful, but he's loud and it can be borderline annoying. But this has the potential to be a good movie...they both just talk too much sometimes. We'll see--thanks for posting this, I hadn't seen anything on it. You're my official "movie critic!" :)

I'm definitely intrigued with Lee's upcoming projects.

Lance--it's good to have a fellow film lover here...I had a post about how I really kinda prefer him sometimes to Spike. @ ivent: that's why for me it can't be just about Sam--somebody else has to be in it that I want to see...thanks for making me one of your film resources :-)

@thc: he has several films due out in the next 2 years...we'll see..

I like Malcolm alot as well. This sounds like it could be a fun project w/Bernie & Sam Jackson.

Invisible Woman said...

I think so too: I also would like to know what it's like on the set with two walking egos working together...haha

Danielle said...

IW. It could be scary w/those 2 egos, but I think it will be more fun than anything else. At least I hope there are no shenanigans. :-)

You're funny Danielle :-)
