Megalyn Echikunwoke has booked a starring role in an indie crime thriller titled Vincent & Roxxy, in which she’ll star opposite Anton Yelchin as a young Chicago woman, Roxxy, who’s on the run, when she meets and is assisted by Vincent, a young man who is also on the run (although from what, we don’t know yet in either case). Being on the run, however, doesn’t stop them from going on a crime spree all their own. And naturally, amid all that running and crime spreeing, they fall in love.
Produced by Keith Kjarval via his Unified Pictures, the film is scripted and will be directed by Gary Michael Schultz, with a July production start date eyed.
Echikunwoke’s resume is full of mostly TV work, from appearing in series like Mind Games, Made in Jersey, House of Lies, to a bit part in A Good Day to Die Hard on the big screen.
