I don’t know about you, but I think that those Gang of Roses movies are, pound for
pound, some of the funniest films being made right now.
You know, those ultra-low budget, hip-hop
westerns about an outlaw female gang with a cast made of black “D-listers.”
Now of course, the films are supposed to be all tongue in
cheek. Well, that is, I hope they’re supposed to be satirical, because if
the filmmakers meant for these films to be taken seriously, then they’re way off
The first GOR film, which came out in 2005, with Lil’ Kim, LisaRaye, Stacey Dash and Bobby Brown reportedly grossed some $18 million, which is especially
impressive when you consider that means they made a $17,999,000 million profit from the movie.
The second GOR (subtitled The Next Generation) with Amber

third and final Gang of Roses film, which will start shooting this August, for a
projected Feb. 2014 release.
This new film, which will be produced by Nulite
Entertainment and Indie Lab Film Studios will be set in “1903 New Mexico, at a
local brothel. Several of the
“working women” there plan a heist that brings them on a collision
course with a group of bandits on the path of revenge.” (Which sounds exactly like the plotline for the previous two films).
According to director Jean-Claude La Marre, who wrote and directed the previous GOR films:
script is incredible. We want the third
and final installment to rise up to the expectations of the fans. It has to be fun, sexy and
Hey, just as long as it’s as funny as the first two, then I’ll
be very satisfied.
According to the release “several names are being considered
for lead roles in the new movie, including Rihanna, Keri Hilson, and Nicki
Which means that the film will most likely star Lil’Kim, though of
course she’ll be totally unrecognizable.
