Omar Epps has written a romantic comedy under his production company, BrooklynWorks Films. Epps plans to star in and produce (along with Tracey Edmonds’ Our Stories Films) the feature film titled Between Us! He told Deadline the finished script is about two best friends “looking for love in the wrong places with a contemporary twist.”
Bryan “Baby” Williams and Ronald “Slim” Williams, CEOs of the Young Money Cash Money Billionaires (YMCMB) record label (whose roster includes Lil Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj) will finance the production. Epps said the pairing with YMCMB came because they’re looking to expand their brand. “They loved the concept and in a perfect world, we’ll be shooting late summer or early fall, but you know how that goes.”
A search for a director is currently underway.
