Larenz Tate has been a part of some of my favorite films, (Love Jones, Ray, Crash) so you can imagine my excitement when I learned that he would be back on the small screen as a part of a new project for BET. The network has been working feverishly to create more original content, in response to requests from viewers, and this is another addition. Mr. Tate announced his involvement via Twitter:
Gun Hill began production this week in New York City. The original film also stars Tawny Cypress (Heroes, Rescue Me) and Aisha Hinds (True Blood, HawthoRNe). The project was written, executive produced by Reggie “Rock” Bythewood (who also worked on New York Undercover), and co-produced by Don Kurt.
No word yet when the film will make it’s debut, but by my guess, we should see it in the first quarter of 2012.
