A casting call for the upcoming "Gabrielle Douglas Story" has been sent out and we have all the deets for you inside…..

 photo GabrielleDouglasStars13thAnnualHaroldYQE8zKHeOVBl.jpg

During the summer of 2013, we all watched Gabrielle Douglas make history as the first woman of color and the first African-American gymnast to become the individual all-around Olympic champion. And now, thanks to the magic of television, Hollywood producers are bringing the story of "Gabrielle Douglas " to life as a tv movie.

And for all of our budding actresses, TheYBF.com is the FIRST to bring you the casting deets!  Here’s what producers seek in their leading lady:

"FEMALE, African American, VERY Petite, Great Smile, Great Eyes, Gymnastic & Dance Ability a PLUS! Takes Direction Well. [GABBY (8 TO SMALL 12 YEARS OLD) and (13 TO 16 YEARS OLD)] (No taller than 5′ 2”)". 

Here’s a synopsis of the movie:

"Gabrielle Douglas was born on December 31, 1995, in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Gabby Douglas began formal gymnastics training at 6 years old and won a state championship by the time she was 8.

She moved away from her hometown and family in 2010 to pursue training with a world-renowned Olympic trainer, and was selected to compete with the U.S. Olympic women’s gymnastics team at the 2012 Summer Olympics. There, Douglas became the first African American to win gold in the individual all-around event."

"THE GABBY DOUGLAS STORY" for Television SAG-AFTRA will be produced by Zev Braun, Philip Krupp and David Rosemont. Gregg Champion will be directing and Tracy Twinkie Byrd is the casting director.  Interview Dates are in August & September. Shooting will begin on or about Sept. 9 thru Oct. 25, 2013 in Winnipeg, Canada.

 

For now, it’s unclear what network will release the movie but we’re excited about it!

MOVIE FAB: The Official “Best Man Holiday” EXTENDED TRAILER

 photo bmholiday.png

The official extended trailer for the much anticipated sequel Best Man Holiday has arrived.  Watch it inside…

During our exclusive coverage of the ABFF last month, this hot trailer was shown and we couldn’t wait to tell you about it.  Director Malcolm D. Lee disclosed that the extended trailer for Best Man Holiday would arrive this month….and now we have it!

All of our favorite characters are accounted for in the flim.  In the extended trailer, we see Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, a pregnant Sanaa Lathan, Monica Calhoun, Melissa De Sousa and Regina Hall, reuniting for a Christmas holiday gathering where rivalries are revisited and old romances rekindled.  

During an interview with Blackfilm.com, Malcolm explained why he made the sequel saying,

“People have often asked “Whatever happened to those characters? Did Jordan ever find a man? Does Murch stay with Candy? Do Lance and Mia live happily ever after?” I have never really taken the time to answer those questions. But they keep getting asked and in light of how it is in heavy rotation on cable TV it very well may be a sign that those questions need to be answered.”

The sequel also stars Eddie Cibrian (as Nia Long’s beau), and singers Anthony Hamilton and Marsha Ambrosius.  The Best Man Holiday hits theaters on November 15.

We’re getting our popcorn, drinks and blanket ready STAT.  (Don’t act like you don’t sneak all that into the movies too…)

Watch the trailer above….

INSIDE DISH: “The Best Man Holiday” Cast Talks Making Movie Magic AGAIN, SOUNDTRACK Expectations, Who Had To Audition, & More

 photo bmh1.jpg

TheYBF.com caught up with the cast of The Best Man Holiday this week in Miami as they reflected on what brought them back together, the studio’s reservations about making a sequel and if they’re going to get another hot movie soundtrack!  See what behind the scenes tea they spilled inside….

 

In 1999, some of Hollywood’s top Black talent united with director Malcolm D. Lee to create The Best Man, a movie AND soundtrack one-two punch, which often finds itself at the top of everyone’s list of cinematic favorites.  And last night, during a special panel discussion at the Ritz-Carlton for the American Black Film Festival (ABFF) in Miami, the cast of The Best Man Holiday (Nia Long, Sanaa Lathan, Morris Chestnut), along with director Malcolm D. Lee,  united on stage to discuss how all nine actors from the classic film reunited to make movie magic once again.

Presented by Comcast/Universal and moderated by tv journalist Shaun Robinson, we got a sneak peek at the upcoming extended movie trailer releasing to the public soon.  And Sanaa Lathan’s character’s pregnancy is revealed in the preview. (But we already told you that.)

 photo bmh3.jpg

Shaun began by asking Malcolm how the sequel came about.  He revealed that he took the original cast to dinner in January 2011 (remember the pics?) and laid out his proposal for the film.  He says that he explained over cocktials what would happen scene-by-scene and that everyone involved knew this WOULD NOT be a random sequel.  And with everyone eagerly jumping on board, Malcolm dished the next hurdle…..pitching the studio.

Malcom explained that whether the film got "greenlighted" depended on the success of films like Jumping The Broom and Think Like a Man because production studios often look at the box office performance of other films to determine if they can "replicate" the success.  You know, since all black films are lumped together….

Although both films performed well at the box office, Universal was still on the fence, so they brought the cast get together for a table read. Luckily, the table reading went over very smoothly.  Sanaa said they performed the script like a "play" and killed it!  And the studio was blown away. 

The cast also spilled a few audition secrets including the little known fact that Morris Chestnut was almost passed over!  Because he plays "Lance Sullivan", a football player, Malcolm initially though he was physically too small for the role until his wife told him, "It’s Morris Chestnut!"

And Sanaa said she was supposed to audition for "Candy", the stripper, but she felt like she was at a different place in her career.

Nia revealed that for the first movie, she didn’t have to audition, but she did have two lunch meetings with Malcolm prior to filming.  Of course.

Here’s more dish from the panel:

Q: Why a sequel 14 years later?

Malcolm D. Lee: “I would describe this movie as the right script at the right time. I was timing it, that’s how this business works, in success they want to make more of the same thing…We met in Jan 2011 and after everyone said they would do it, Morris said, Ok what is the next step? I said, We have to wait until Jumping the broom comes out and see how that movie does, and Morris said we don’t need them, and that might be true but it will prove to the studios that black people would want to go see movies about successful black people.“  “Nobody up here did it for the money, they did it for the Love of the movie.”

Q: The studio is not sure, even though the first one was a success, and they got the cast and everything and they’re still not sure?

Sanaa Lathan: “All of a sudden the studio wasn’t sure. We are not sure that it has all of the elements as the first one. We couldn’t believe that they couldn’t see it. We did a table read and acted it all out like a play. It was basically like we were auditioning as this cast for the movie. “

Malcom D. Lee: “After the table read, they were just blown away. They said, You know what? Reading it on this page doesn’t compare to hearing the words out loud.”

Q: Let’s talk about the first day on set. What was that moment like?

Nia Long: “We were bad little kids, We were so excited.”

Sanaa Lathan: “We were like 12 year olds at camp. We all love each other we are like family. We literally are friends and we hang out. It’s been damn near 20 years now so we are pretty family and we get to work together. We were so loud. We had a blast.”

Nia Long: What came out of this was such passion from all of us. We’ve all worked together before but it was so special with this one. We are really solid in who we are and then when you get to play a character you already know, it’s like Woohoo we have grown.

Sanaa Lathan: One of the things that kind of always blew my mind during this whole process, is, how crazy that all 9 of us are still in the business and that all of us are alive. What are the odds of 9 people not being crazy walking down the street. The odds of being in this world for 15 years where people fall off.

Q: What should we expect from the soundtrack…

Malcom D Lee: I can’t give away too much, but a couple of artist already contributed to the movie. Marsha Ambrosius and Anthony Hamilton do a duet that will knock you guys out. There are a lot of Christmas songs and a lot of remakes, it will be a mix but satisfying.

After the talk, the fab cast posed with blackfilm.com editor Wilson Morales and Talitha Watkins, the VP of Multicultural Marketing for Universal Pictures.

The film is expected to hit the silver screen on November 15, 2013.

2013 MTV MOVIE AWARDS: Kerry Washington, Jamie Foxx & Corinne, Snoop & More Hit The Red Carpet

 photo JamieFoxx2013MTVMovieAwardsArrivalsUfg46w6DUPfx_zps8b3d1f25.jpg

A few YBFers made their way to the red carpet Sunday night for the 2013 MTV Movie Awards at the Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, CA.  Check out Kerry Washington, dual winner Jamie Foxx, Zoe Saldana and more inside…

 

 photo 2013MTVMovieAwardsRedCarpetMI6bX41tUL4l_zps5e56d286.jpg

Django Unchained star Kerry Washington made a bold statement on the red carpet with a long sleeved black dress with a yellow skirt and train from the Michael Kors Fall 2013 RTW collection.  The fashionable "Scandal" actress made the look effortless as she hit the carpet solo, as well as with her co-star Jamie Foxx.

And speaking of Jamie:

 photo JamieFoxx2013MTVMovieAwardsArrivalsUP_imTBKwv2x_zps59bd0b57.jpg

The actor, rocking a Trayvon Martin tee, brought his gorge 19-year-old daughter Corinne on the carpet as his date for the evening.  We’re sure the two celebrated hard as Jamie was awarded the MTV Generation Award (an award given to an artist "who has shown a variety of impressive roles, a personal and professional flair and of course, an awesome level of talent"). 

And he also copped the "Best WTF Moment" award with Samuel L. Jackson for their scenes in Django Unchained.

Zoe Saldana also donned a long sleeved black top, and paired it with a stand-out bottom half.  The Givenchy Autumn/Winter 2013 floral lace & sheer polka dotted long skirt was topped off with a pair of Jimmy Choo Kalpa sandals. 

Chick is looking like she’s either dieting extra hard…still… or she’s still stressed about her break up with The Words co-star Bradley Cooper, who was also there and copped an award.

Scary Movie 5 star Snoop Dogg hit the carpet in his Cali plaid shirt and pants, paird with a pimpalicious red fur jacket.  And can’t forget the pimp curls.

Cutie Quvenzhané Wallis, who’s starring in the upcoming Annie remake, kept it young with a lavender jacket & a multi colored hi-lo dress with matching sneakers.  How adorable is she!

"Access Hollywood" correspondent Shaun Robinson dazzled it up in her black, nude & white sparkling dress.  She looks great.

And Ru Paul was all about the florals in his matchy matchy blazer & tailored pants with the white loafers.  Clean.  Get it Ru!
