"I think people would agree that I have pretty good taste and a strong track record in recent years with the indie films I've chosen to make. I believe "Lap Dance" is the greatest film ever made about the life of a stripper. People will be very entertained and pleasantly surprised."Words from producer Datari Turner about one of a few upcoming films on his slate - Lap Dance.As I recall, when Vanessa posted a first clip from the film, in the spring of this year, your reactions were mostly negative, and I'd say that Datari's comment above were to address your concerns - as well as those on any other site that shared the clip.Recapping Vanessa's post... described as a modern-day Indecent Proposal, Lap Dance revolves around Monica (Ali Cobrin), an aspiring actress who "makes a pact with her fiance to take a job as an exotic dancer to care for her cancer-stricken father." The film, which screened this summer at the American Black Film Festival in Miami, is directed by Gregory Carter, from a script by both Carter and Datari Turner, who also produced via his Datari Turner Productions, along with Gordon Bijelonic-Datari Turner Films and Imprint Entertainment.The film's ensemble cast list includes: Mariel Hemingway, James Remar, Lynn Whitfield, Omari Hardwick, Carmen Electra, Lisa Raye, Robert Hoffman, Briana Evigan, Nia Peoples, Datari Turner, Omar Gooding, Keith Robinson, Lew Temple, Stacey Dash, Obba Babatunde, Quinton Aaron, K.D. Aubert, Christian Keyes, Wesley Jonathan, Terrell "T.O." Owens, Ron Jeremy, and Dennis White.By the way, also on Turner's upcoming slate is a Garcelle Beauvais-starrer titled Loose - described as a coming-of-age drama, that Ty Hodges is directing, with Meagan Good also producing, and Dan Garcia exec producing.Loose follows Grace, a young girl from a small town trying to figure out her purpose in life.
