Tommy Mickens is Ready to Roll

A new movie, going by the name of ‘Sugar‘, is about to go into production by Village Entertainment. Marshall Allman, who plays Tommy Mickens in Season 3 of HBO’s TV series True Blood has been cast in it.

The movie is loosely based on the life of Rotimi Rainwater, the owner of Village Entertainment. He will be making his directorial debut on this movie using a script that he co-wrote with Tony Aloupis. Ali Palitz from All Is Well Films will co-produce it.

The producers have partnered with ‘My Friend’s Place,’ which is a nonprofit organization that provides valuable resources such as food and education to the homeless. The movie will be shot in part on location at ‘My Friend’s Place’ and they hope to raise much needed funds for this wonderful organization.

Other stars of the movie will include Shanae Grimes who played Annie Wilson in ‘90210‘ and Darcy Edwards from ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation.’ Grimes will play the role of a post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)  sufferer who is living on the streets of Venice Beach, CA.

Casting is Still Underway

A couple of roles are still up for grabs. So if you want to star along side a True Blood cast member, then there may be a role just for you! They are still looking for a male who can play a 21 year old and is an excellent skate boarder. They are also searching for a Pacific Islander or a Latino female to play a streetwise homeless friend of Sugar’s.”

‘Sugar’ is scheduled for release in late 2011.
