*BET announced on Wednesday plans to begin production on a new original movie for television called “Gun Hill,” staring today’s birthday boy, Larenz Tate as well as Tawny Cypress and Aisha Hinds.

“Gun Hill” is written. directed, produced and executive produced by Reggie ‘Rock’ Bythewood. No word yet on when the film will premiere on the network.
