Received word over the weekend that some S&A actor favorites – Dorian Missick, Yaya DaCosta and Gbenga Akinnagbe – have all signed on to star in Neil Drumming’s feature film directorial debut titled Big Words.
Specifics details on the project are still limited, but I do know that Missick plays the title character, John “Big Words” Smith, in a film that’s set in Brooklyn, on the day that President Obama got elected.
The film is currently in pre-production, with the beginning of principal photography imminent.
A little background on Neil Drumming… he’s black by the way, in case you were wondering; a former staff writer and editor at Entertainment Weekly, he’s also penned pieces for Wired, The Washington Post, Vibe, Rolling Stone, Essence and Vanity Fair. In 2011, he completed the short film Hi Res, which starring Jevon McFerrin and Nadia Kiyatkina.
