Titled Headshop, its cast includes Deon Cole, Kris Marshall, Nicole Ari Parker, Loretta Devine, Reno Wilson, Kimberly Elise, Michael Jai White and Marla Gibbs.
Filming is currently taking place in Los Angeles, with additional scenes being shot in San Fransisco and Oakland, where the movie is set.
“We look forward to bringing this fun, yet meaningful story to fruition. The cast is amazing and I enjoy working with these phenomenal, professional performers. As always when possible, I am also proud to continue to bring good jobs to California-based film industry workers,” said Bass.
The film’s description reads: “HeadShop is a magical urban tale about a beautiful psychologist, based in San Francisco, who decides to end a stalled romance with her longtime, high-profile, psychiatrist boyfriend/business partner. She moves on with her life by opening her own private practice in a vacant, street-front office space in the middle of a small commercial block located across the bay in Oakland. The move turns the predominately African-American and psychologically ignored neighborhood on its emotional ear.”
A release date hasn’t been set.
