Omari Hardwick, Shanola Hampton Headline Charles Murray's Debut Feature "Things Never Said"

Production recently wrapped on writer/director/executive producer Charles Murray’s feature debut, Things Never Said, which stars Shanola Hampton (Shameless), Omari Hardwick, Elimu Nelson (The Shield), Tamala Jones, Dorian Missick and Michael Beach.

Described as a drama/romance, the micro-budgeted film “explores a young woman’s quest for self worth and purpose as she struggles to find the meaning behind her choices and her voice through spoken-word poetry.

Director Murray’s credits include mostly TV writing for shows like Castle, Criminal Minds and Third Watch, all acclaimed series; so, naturally, his abilities as a writer on those programs should extend to his feature film, and should put Murray and his debut on our list of filmmakers and films to watch in the coming year.

Things Never Said is produced by Omar Albertto and Brian Lewis.

Expect to see it in the spring of 2012.
