Michael Jai White of Black Dynamite fame and model-turned-actor Tyson Beckford are in negotiations to star in ‘Chocolate City’ an urban tale of Devin, a college student struggling to make ends meet.
When he meets the owner of a male strip club (White), he convinces him to give amateur night a try. Beckford will play Adrian, the club’s former star attraction who finds his popularity fading as the new kid starts to steal the spotlight.
The producers are aiming to merge the Magic Mike phenomenon with the recent strength of African-American films at the box office.
Should be interesting! Hopefully, Tyson’s acting chops are up for the role. Lord knows he has the look.
