I admit when I first saw this trailer I said to myself: “Hey, N’Bushe Wright! I haven’t seen her since, I think, Blade!”
Now, you can say the same when you watch this trailer for the new dramatic thriller Joy Road, coming out this fall, starring Wright and Wood Harris of The Wire fame.
Co-starring Obba Babatunde and the always interesting and quirky Roger Guenveur Smith, and directed by Harry Davis, the film, which is set in Detroit, deals with a successful lawyer (Harris) who’s made the long journey from the hood he grew up in. Unfortunately, he finds himself way in over his head, and in a bad way, when he agrees to help our his troubled sister (Wright) when her boyfriend is arrested for murder. He finds himself a pawn in a conspiracy to pass laws that fill up prisons.
Judging from the trailer below it looks pretty slick and well put together. I would check it out when it comes out this fall:
