John Singleton Says His Next Film Will Be “A Crazy, Dysfunctional Love Story Set In The Hood”

John Singleton Says His Next Film Will Be "A Crazy, Dysfunctional Love Story Set In The Hood"

Alright… so we know that John Singleton is planning to reunite Taraji P. Henson and Tyrese Gibson in a new film, since they were last paired up in his 2001 drama Baby Boy; although, as has already been noted, this upcoming new film is NOT a sequel to Baby Boy, and neither Singleton, nor the two actors have revealed much about what this secret new project. 

Well… at the black cinema townhall discussion I participated in this past weekend, on Saturday, at the Museum Of The Moving Image here in NYC, put together by Warrington Hudlin (titled We Gotta Have It: The 20th Anniversary of the New Wave of Black Cinema), John Singleton was one of the guest interviews, and he revealed a little bit more about the upcoming Taraji/Tyrese project. Emphasis on “a little bit more;” No real plot details, no other casting announcements, no expected shoot and/or release dates. None of that.

Sorry!

But what he did reveal was the following, verbatim: “It’s a crazy, dysfunctional love story set in the hood.

And he also said that it’s an original script he’s written, and it will indeed be his next project.

That’s it! Not a lot, but a little more than what we knew before today.  

Of course, a lot still has to happen before it goes before cameras… like, you know, financing it. He didn’t say anything about that however.

So, let your imaginations start to run wild…

ALSO, 'Baby Boy' was one of his better overall films since the excellent 'Boys in the Hood'. And I mean one.

If it's anything like Baby Boy then I shall pass…

In the Hood ?…why ? Can't we get a regular Love Story ?..set in "Any-Town USA".

@ DJ

It's certainly better than any of his big budget Hollywood productions, and probably his funniest and most entertaining film to date.

If it's anything like "Baby Boy", I'm in.

Why are the haters already out for him? He didn't even give you so much as a logline.

Baby boy 2?

DJ

John, you did that movie already — it was called, Baby Boy, and it wasn't very good.

Zeus

No thanks.
