70s classic “Good Times” to be a movie. Cast includes Queen Latifah, Beyonce, Dave Chappelle and more!

That’s right y’all!!! JJ, Thelma, James, Florida, and the rest of the cast from the 70s classic TV show will be back, but this time on the silver screen! The cast to include Dave Chapelle as “JJ,” Loretta Divine as “Florida,” Delro Lindo as “James,” Beyonce as “Thelma,” Queen Latifah as “Willona.” Production is currently slated for Fall 2010 and filmmaker Maurice Jamal has been named as the director.

I’m 2 for 2 on Maurice Jamal films. The Ski Trip was another netflix gem.

I must say that The Ski Trip was a really good flick. Great, fun storyline with the classic independent film campy vibe. I’m the type that doesn’t need special effects make a story more interesting, rather, the story itself needs to be well conveyed to hold my attention. That’s how classics are still classics, right? I could watch Sydney Poitier in “A Raisin in the Sun” over and over and over again.

Peep the trailer for Maurice Jamal’s TV series “Friends and Lovers”

I didn’t want to pop this into my last post about this show because I already had so much stuff in there, but please peep the trailer. This show looks like it’s going to be good! The series will be on tv this Fall, however, Maurice is not spilling the beans regarding the network that has picked it up. I’ll be sure to post once he makes the announcement.

My Netflix Pick ‘Dirty Laundry; was a buried treasure

I hadn’t heard of the movie “Dirty Laundry,” but the short summary caught my eye.
