'Gang Of Roses 3' In The Works (Oh Joy!)

I don’t know about you, but I think that those Gang of Roses movies are, pound for pound, some of the funniest films being made right now.

You know, those ultra-low budget, hip-hop westerns about an outlaw female gang with a cast made of black "D-listers."

Now of course, the films are supposed to be all tongue in cheek. Well, that is, I hope they're supposed to be satirical, because if the filmmakers meant for these films to be taken seriously, then they’re way off the mark.

The first GOR film, which came out in 2005, with Lil’ Kim, LisaRaye, Stacey Dash and Bobby Brown reportedly grossed some $18 million, which is especially impressive when you consider that means they made a $17,999,000 million profit from the movie.

The second GOR (subtitled The Next Generation) with Amber Rose, Eurika Pratts, Teyana Taylor and Rocsi Diaz sold close to 200,000 since its Feb 2012 release.

So it was with unbridled joy when I got a press release to announce that funding has been secured, and that plans are underway for the third and final Gang of Roses film, which will start shooting this August, for a projected Feb. 2014 release.

This new film, which will be produced by Nulite Entertainment and Indie Lab Film Studios will be set in "1903 New Mexico, at a local brothel. Several of the "working women" there plan a heist that brings them on a collision course with a group of bandits on the path of revenge." (Which sounds exactly like the plotline for the previous two films).

According to director Jean-Claude La Marre, who wrote and directed the previous GOR films: "The script is incredible.  We want the third and final installment to rise up to the expectations of the fans.  It has to be fun, sexy and action-packed."

Hey, just as long as it’s as funny as the first two, then I’ll be very satisfied.

According to the release “several names are being considered for lead roles in the  new movie,  including Rihanna, Keri Hilson, and Nicki Minaj.”  

Which means that the film will most likely star Lil’Kim, though of course she’ll be totally unrecognizable.

Here’s the trailer for Gang of Roses 2

    Jean-Claude La Marre is a thief who charges actors to audition for his shit movies. He's clever and charges via casting director "workshops" where actors pay to audition, and via a sleazy "party invite" where an actor must pay $20 to attend a party in order to be considered for the film.

    Actors need to know what a douchebag this guy is. NEVER pay to play, and certainly not for a shot at this crap.

    It only made that kind of money, because of VHS & DVD sales? since the first movie came out in 2003. when VHS was still around.

  • JEFTCG | May 14, 2013 3:32 AMReply

    Anyone who would call this flick an "installment" with a straight face is clearly a better poker player than I.

  • Man-Over-Bored | May 14, 2013 1:42 AMReply

    Jean-Claude La Marre has got to be one of the worst directors ever -- his projects are consistently unwatchable, every one of them!

  • blah, blah | May 13, 2013 5:22 PMReply

    Yeah I had no idea there were three of them. I knew about the first one and just figured that this was some quick money scheme, not that they were dead serious about it. Now I got to go watch the first two

  • Donella | May 13, 2013 5:20 PMReply

    Niki Minaj, Keri Hilson, Rihanna... so they're not even going to attempt a trained actress in the lead. Or no trained actress wanted to carry a video star from scene to scene.

  • i'mjustsaying | May 13, 2013 3:17 PMReply

    i just want to know where they got those silky hair weaves in the wild, wild west

  • bq | May 13, 2013 10:29 PM

    LOL! I was just thinkin the same thing! Weaves, arched eyebrows, huge diamond earrings. And whoever was dancing in the saloon was waaaaaayyyyy underdressed. Brothel women were still fully clothed back then.

    I just can't.....

    My man, my man, you've done it again. In my opinion this is your best tongue-n-cheek post of this quarter. I know, some folks don't get it but you crack me up.

    Some jewels:

    "...pound for pound, some of the funniest films being made right now..."

    ..."Which means that the film will most likely star Lil’Kim..."

    ...hip-hop westerns about an outlaw female gang with a cast made of black "D-listers."

    D-listers... stop it, you're hurting me :-)

    "According to director Jean-Claude La Marre, who wrote and directed the previous GOR films: "The script is incredible.

    "You did read the synopsis for the new one right? Sure sounds like they're prostitutes to me."

    Sergio, you are a mess... but I like that in you.

  • JEFTCG | May 14, 2013 3:34 AM

    Once again, agreeing with CareyCarey. Sergio = hilarious and dry as a 20 dollar martini.... speaking of which....

  • Boss lady | May 13, 2013 12:51 PMReply

    These movies are campy for sure but as an African American woman I applaud the filmakers for at least trying something new! Wait, you mean we don't just play maids, mammies and prostitutes. So for that reason alone I'll continue to support this!

  • sergio | May 13, 2013 1:10 PM

    I've always suspected that people never really pay attention to what we write on this site. You did read the synopsis for the new one right? "... set in 1903 New Mexico, at a local brothel. Several of the "working women" there plan a heist that brings them on a collision course with a group of bandits on the path of revenge." Sure sounds like they're prostitutes to me.

    And you sound like one of those "let's-support-black-people-no-matter-what-they-do-even-if-it's-total-shit-as-long-as-they're-making-money" type of people.

    Or maybe I'm wrong

    Meanwhile, Box Office Mojo has the original Gang of Roses making only 30K. I didn't even know this turd made it to theaters. I can't imagine any film making $18 million in overall revenue without a substantial box office. Theatrical gross drives the overall gross of all films.

  • NO BRAINER | May 14, 2013 12:35 AM

    Is that the best you have, TRUTH. And why call yourself truth when there isn't a single thing true about you? TRUTH is not your name. Good thing too, because I doubt whether the real you is that bold or could back up your insults off line. Coward.

    @No Brains

    Any idiot could read what he typed and could easily see he was joking shit for brains.

  • NO BRAINER | May 13, 2013 1:38 PM

    Oh, I see. You were joking. I can't tell. You don't strike em as the type with a sense of humor, not that this lame joke of yours changes anything. Haha. You kill me?

  • NO BRAINER | May 13, 2013 1:36 PM

    I see how that might not be clear, the $7,000 thing. I'll simply add, in motion pictures, the investment not only includes the production budget, it also includes distribution, marketing, theatrical rental fees and other ancillaries. In essence, a film needs to make back at least 3-4x its budget to see a profit. So, if GOR was made for lets say $7,500 or less, then you can say a slight profit was made somewhere in the $30,000. SLIGHT (1-2% Return On Investment at most). But we all know this film was made for way more than $7,500. So, again, IT DID NOT MAKE A PROFIT.

  • Sergio | May 13, 2013 1:25 PM

    Like DUH I was making a joke (making light of the low grade production values of the movie in case I have to explain it to you) which would have been a NO BRAINER for someone who prides themselves for using the moniker NO BRAINER.

    Or is because you have no brains? But I won't stoop that low.

    OOPS Too late!

  • NO BRAINER | May 13, 2013 1:14 PM

    SERGIO, you should be ashamed of yourself for saying that. Maybe in your world. But everyone outside of your world knows that a "profit" is only made when the product makes money above the investment. Unless this film was made for $7,000 or LESS, IT DID NOT MAKE A PROFIT. I can't imagine anyone who is supposed to be knowledgeable on the way things work in the motion picture industry saying $30,000 is a profit for any film budgeted over $7000.

  • sergio | May 13, 2013 12:34 PM

    Hey even it it made $30,000 it STILL made a profit

  • NO BRAINER | May 13, 2013 12:06 PMReply

    There's a third installment??? They should've quit after the first one, which is one of the worst movies I ever saw.

  • WJ | May 13, 2013 12:06 PMReply

    I couldn't even get past the first 20mins of "GOR II".

    ugh.

    "The first GOR film, which came out in 2005, with Lil’ Kim, LisaRaye, Stacey Dash and Bobby Brown reportedly grossed some $18 million"

    That's not a typo? It's not supposed to say $18 thousand?

  • BluTopaz | May 13, 2013 1:02 PM

    I'm guessing they meant 18 million shillings or pesos.

  • Sergio | May 13, 2013 11:35 AM

    Yes that is suspicious, but that's what they say.

  • Sweeta | May 13, 2013 11:08 AMReply

    I thought today was gonna be a bad day. Then I read this, "The first GOR film, which came out in 2005, with Lil’ Kim, LisaRaye, Stacey Dash and Bobby Brown reportedly grossed some $18 million, which is especially impressive when you consider that that means they made a $17,999,000 million profit from the movie," and the clouds parted. Thank you.

  • JEFTCG | May 14, 2013 3:28 AM

    Going to have to go on ahead and agree with you there, Sweeta. When I read that line I almost spat my orange juice.
