Queen Latifah Exec Produced 'Brotherly Love' (Starring Cory Hardrict, Keke Palmer) Gets Poster & Release Date
Keke Palmer shared the above poster on her Instagram page without a caption, so it didn’t immediately register with me. But, thanks to the S&A archives, I have the all the necessary info on the project.
In brief, it’s a feature film we profiled in 2013, when it was said to be in post-production. The Queen Latifah/Flavor Unit-produced drama is titled “Brotherly Love,” as you can see in the poster, is written and directed by Jamal Hill, with Eric D. Hill Jr., Cory Hardrict, and Keke Palmer starring.
The Overbrook High School, Philly-set film follows basketball star Sergio Taylor (Eric D. Hill Jr.) and his struggles navigating the fame that comes with being a star athlete.
Hardict plays his older brother June, and Palmer plays his sister Jackie – both siblings who saw their own dreams and ambitions sidetracked by their father’s death.
Romeo Miller, Logan Browning, Eric Hill, Quincy Brown, Faizon Love, Macy Gray, and Malik Yoba round out the film’s cast.
By the way, Overbrook High School counts Will Smith as one of its alums.
Latifah’s Flavor Unit Entertainment, alongside Jacavi Films, and Electric Republic are producing.
No trailer yet, but, based on the poster Palmer shared above, it looks like a theatrical release is eyed, with an April 24 date set.
