Shooting is underway in Brooklyn, NYC for George Tillman Jr.’s The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete, which stars Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jennifer Hudson, Anthony Mackie, Jordin Sparks, and Jeffrey Wright, in a drama that sees Jennifer Hudson as a drug addict mother whose arrest forces her son and his best friend to fend for themselves.
The script was penned by Michael Starrbury, whose credits include the 2011 TV film Black Jack starring Ving Rhames, as well as a few shorts.
It’s not yet known what roles the other actors play in the film, and what their relationships are. But we’ll know soon enough, I’m sure.
The film is being co-produced by Alicia Keys who co-starred with Hudson in The Secret Life of Bees.
Actor Tarik Lowe, whom I suppose we can now add as a cast member for the film, posted the above photo (on his Facebook page) of himself and a bearded, mohawked Anthony Mackie, on the Inevitable set.
The full photo follows below, and I’d say is begging for a caption (I think Mackie should do another movie just like this – an action movie, in which he plays a hero with a bad attitude):
