*Queen Latifah‘s Flavor Unit shingle is releasing “Brotherly Love,” a drama set in the City of Brotherly Love, according to Deadline.com.
In West Philadelphia, born-and-raised basketball star Sergio Taylor (Eric D. Hill Jr.) deals with the early pressures of fame. Alongside older brother June (Cory Hardrict), who lost his own hoop dreams to the streets to provide for the family after their father’s death, and sister Jackie (“CrazySexyCool‘s” Keke Palmer), whose own musical ambitions are sidetracked by love, Sergio faces life-altering decisions on the streets of Philly known as “The Top” and “The Bottom.”
The film, written and directed by Jamal Hill, is set against the backdrop of Philly’s famed Overbrook High School, whose real-life alumni include Will Smith and Wilt Chamberlain.
Flavor Unit Entertainment, Jacavi Films, and Electric Republic are producing with Queen Latifah, Shakim Compere, Shelby Stone, Yaneley Arty, Jacob York, and Rene Garcia aboard as exec producers.
Romeo Miller, Logan Browning, Eric Hill, Quincy Brown, Faizon Love, Macy Gray, and Malik Yoba also star.
*On Friday we reported that actor Faizon Love had a run-in with funnyman Katt Williams that wasn’t even remotely funny.
Earlier in the week, the little fella pulled a gun on Love who thought he was a goner … based on crazy Katt’s obsession with drugs mixed with firearms, Faizon says.
Love called into TMZ Live Friday to explain what went down Tuesday night — when Katt pulled a gun on him at a parking lot outside Supperclub in Hollywood.
Faizon says … when Katt pointed the weapon at him, he 100% feared getting shot, explaining … “When someone pulls a gun and they on that narcotics … you don’t know what’s gonna happen.”
One of Love’s homeboys managed to snatch the gun from Katt — and discovered it was unloaded.
Katt was arrested that night for a possible gun violation, but was later released from custody — and no charges have been filed.
Ok, so what caused the beef then? Well, Faizon Love won’t say. However, he claims it’s about something that happened 6 months ago. Earlier TMZ said it was about money, but Love once again says that not the case.
