A reunion of sorts is in the works, well for two people at least. Mike Epps, Queen Latifah, T.I., and the director of the film ATL Chris Robinson are all linking up to begin working on a new movie called The Trap. The movies is set to be a comedy. The premise for the comedy revolves around the story of T.I.’s character coming back home to Atlanta after a while to help save his family’s fledgling restaurant. Mike Epps will play T.I.’s brother. A new chicken recipe helps to bring the restaurant back to life but also causes some unforeseen problems. Mike Epps will also be playing legendary comedian Richard Pryor in an upcoming biopic. Eddie Murphy, Oprah Winfrey, Kate Hudson, and Jennifer Hudson are slated to star in the movie. Filming for that will begin in 2017. Mike Epps hit the pen and pad to co-write the story, with Nile Evans, that the comedy is based on. Niles Evans is handling the script. The film is being financed by Queen Latifah and Flavor Unit Entertainment partner Shakim Compere. They are also producing The Trap with Mike Epps and Naptown Productions’ partner Niles Kirchner. Robinson is also set to produce while Jesse Collins will executive produce.
Filming for The Trap is set to begin this fall.
