As we told you when we interviewed actor Larenz Tate, his new film on BET is prepping to premiere soon. The new film titled Gun Hill is part of BET network’s line-up of new original programming and is directed by Reggie “Rock” Bythewood (of Biker Boyz fame).
In the new film, Tate is portraying twin brothers, Trane and Bird, on opposite sides of the law. The film also stars Emayatzy Corinealdi, Michael Aronov, Phyllis Yvonne Stickney (of How Stella Got Her Groove Back fame), Tawny Cypress (Heroes, Rescue Me) and Aisha Hinds (True Blood,Hawthorne).
Here’s the full synopsis of the film:
For the adults who go to the movies mostly on premiere weekends, this original film with beloved leading man Larenz Tate is sure to satisfy their fresh tastes. From the executive producers of New York Undercover, this high-powered cop drama is about identical twins on opposite sides of life: Trane, a cop, and Bird, a con. On one fateful night, Trane is killed. Bird assumes his identity and begins his own search for redemption. Set in the mean streets of New York, this smart, gritty two-hour movie event features an ensemble cast of characters operating on all sides of the law, where no one is quite what they seem.
There is no broadcast date for the film, but stay tuned as this story is developing.
