A new black film in the un-romantic comedy genre is set to hit theaters in February.
James (JAMEEL SALEEM) gets evicted from his apartment and moves in with his girlfriend of 3 months Kim (KIMELIA WEATHERS) and quickly discovers she’s everything he never wanted in a woman. He enlists best friends Carville (QUINCY “QDEEZY” HARRIS) and Leona (NOELLE BALFOUR), plus strangers like BIG BOY and KEVIN HART to find a relationship exit strategy; but for Kim, breaking up just isn’t an option.
Nationally-syndicated morning radio host Big Boy from KPWR Power 106 in Los Angeles is the Executive Producer of the full-length film through his production company Ida’s Son Productions with Ask Around Productions — a romantic comedy by Slamdance screenwriting finalist Jameel Saleem. Exit Strategy is Directed by Michael Whitton, Produced by Kellie Maltagliati and Hot 107.9 personality Quincy “QDeezy” Harris, and stars Jameel Saleem, Kimelia Weathers, and QDeezy, with Big Boy and Kevin Hart.
The film was shot on the HD video-enabled Canon EOS 5D Mark II DSLR in Los Angeles and North Hollywood, with post-production completed in Los Angeles.
After watching the trailers the movie looks like it’s going to be funny. Anything with Kevin Hart is bound to have a few laughs, it’s nice to see some new black actors getting some shine as well.
