‘Black Girl In Paris’ Currently In Production With Tracey Heggins

'Black Girl In Paris' Currently In Production With Tracey Heggins

Last week, we found out about an under-the-radar film project currently in production titled Black Girl in Paris, based on the book by Shay Youngblood that supposedly stars Tracy Heggins from Medicine for Melancholy, LUV and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.

We searched and couldn’t cornfirm it. There’s not even a listing for the project on

Fortunately, Emmanuel came across this video interview (below) with British actress Zaraah Abrahams, who is co-starring with Heggins in the film, and which confirms that the project is indeed currently in production.

However no word yet as to who is directing for the film, who the screenwriter is, or who’s producing it, although I’ve come across some info that states actress Ashley Brown is one of the producers.

Of course, it goes without saying that once we find out more information about this film we’ll pass it along to you.

*reminds self to get old paperbacks out of storage*
Awesome! I enjoyed reading that book as a young adult. If I remember correctly, the main character was complex and the book had a nuanced sensuality about it. If done right, it has the potential to be something that could break new ground in black cinema.




YES! I'm so happy to read that this wonderful book will be turned into a film. This book changed my life!
