Shout out to Philadelphia native and hip hop icon Charlie Mack is at it again, he’s bringing the stars to the city of #BrotherlyLove yet this time its not for a concert nor a party weekend. While many may know Charlie for being #thefirstoutthelimo (an official bodyguard ), a concert promoter, and the man responsible for sparking the career Philly native Maybach Music artist Meek Mills, Mr Mack is putting on a new hat this season, “Movie Producer”
From our understanding, the movie is about three brothers living in West Philly and one of them happens to be a Overbrook High School basketball star,18 year old Sergio Taylor who has been the Nation’s number one high school basketball prospect for the last two years according to ESPN magazine, SLAM and Inside the NBA. Despite his harsh environment, Sergio has been able to retain his boyish charm and integrity as a good-hearted individual who is determined to make his dreams of going pro a reality….
Filming for the movie began last Monday, one of the sets took place inside of the legendary Overbrook high school and some of the cast consist of Philly’s own Nafessa Williams, Malik Yoba (from old school sitcom New York Undercover), Keke Palmer,Quincy Brown (son of Al B. Sure and stepson of Diddy)singer Macy Gray, Julito McCullum (of “The Wire”), The husband of Tia Mowry and cast member of reality show Tia and Tamera of Cory Hardrict, in addition to a host of others.
The film is all written and directed by another Philly native Jamal Hill (Streets, After Autumn, Money Power Respect) plus hip hop legend Queen Latifah and Jacob York are among the film’s executive producers.
