“Chocolate City” follows Devin…
a young college student struggling to make ends meet who meets the
owner of a male strip club who convinces him to give amateur night a
Jai White plays the owner of the strip club, while Beckford is the club’s
former star attraction, whose star is now fading, thanks to the upstart
kid who’s moving in.
Robert Ri’chard plays Devin, the young college student, while Pratts is his girlfriend
who isn’t too pleased with her boyfriend’s choice of employment.
Director LaMarre (who most recently helmed the “Gang of Roses” movies) says that the project is one he’s been developing for a
couple of years, as he researched the male strip club scene, eventually
realizing how immensely popular it is.
LaMarre, who penned the script, is also producing via his Nulite production company, along with Gabriel Casseus, Robert Aaronson and Rozina Negusei of Zanar Entertainment.
