Darkroom Productions goes to Hollywood
Darkroom Productions (pictured), the acclaimed local hip-hop duo, are getting into the movie business.
In February, they will open a Los Angeles office, which will house DP's film department. Once there, they will begin filming a movie called Cult, which stars Giovanni Ribisi and Liana Mendoza. DP and Darin Roche will produce the film, which will be directed by Charles F. Kaufman.
According to its Web site, Cult is about a mother who takes revenge on a group of religious fanatics who killed her son. Heavy stuff, man.
In other DP news, be on the lookout for Teravolve, the new full-length from the Get 'Em Mamis in the next few months.
DP also scored the documentary Poet Pride, which centers on the ups and downs of Dunbar High basketball teams. You can watch the trailer here.
