R&B singer Ginuwine recently posted on his Instagram the official poster for his upcoming stripper drama, Chocolate City. As previously reported, the film focuses on a college student who decides to give exotic dancing a try to pay the bills but struggles with his new found fame that goes against his strict religious upbringing.
Chocolate City, which is already being compared to the hugely popular Magic Mike, stars Michael Jai White as the strip club owner, supermodel Tyson Beckford as the club’s premiere dancer whose star is fading and Robert Ri’Chard as the college student Michael. It appears he replaced rapper/actor Romeo Miller as the film’s lead.
Round out the cast is Carmen Electra, Vivica A. Fox, Imani Hakim, Darrin Dewitt Henson, Ernest Thomas, Trae Ireland, and Eurika Pratts as Michael’s girlfriend who’s on the fence about her boyfriend’s new job. The film is directed by Jean-Claude LaMarre, who also stars as Pastor Jones.
Here is just a taste (no pun intended) of what’s to come! Check out the TMZ video of Tyson Beckford dropping it low on the set of Chocolate City + the full poster below:
