Just as it was shared that Marlon Wayans newest comedy ’50 Shades Of Black’ has started filming, we get confirmation that Mike Epps, and Affion Crockett will be featuring in the comedy as well. For Mike and Marlon the two have already been in talks to film in a separate project, so this will be an early look at their chemistry together. Affion comes in as Marlon’s go to guy for such comedy projects. It has been also confirmed that Kali Hawk will be in the new film.
Mike Epps, Kali Hawk, Jane Seymour, Affion Crockett and Fred Willard have joined Marlon Wayans in IM Global’s spoof “Fifty Shades of Black” with filming starting in Los Angeles. The film is financed by IM Global’s Octane division. Wayans, who stars as mysterious entrepreneur Christian Black, is a producer and writer of the film alongside regular writing and producing partner Rick Alvarez. Mike Tiddes is directing, and IM Global CEO Stuart Ford is executive producing along with President of Production Matt Jackson, Senior VP of Production Glendon Palmer and Paddy Cullen. Open Road, which distributed both of Wayans’ “A Haunted House” spoofs, has set a Jan. 29 release for the U.S. Hawk (“Bridesmaids”) portrays the young woman drawn to Christian Black.
