Leslie Harris, director of the 1992 Sundance festival winner Just Another Girl on the IRT, has returned to the indie world to produce her new feature I Love Cinema.
Jennifer Williams, formerly of the VH1 reality series Basketball Wives, is set to star as Professor Laneaux, a woman "obsessed with film both in the classroom and the bedroom, but the Professor's Film Fantasy World is shattered by racial controversy and a crazy media circus all seemingly out to get her."
Harris says of the film:
I love movies that’s why I wrote the screenplay 'I Love Cinema'. It has the tone of some my favorite classic films like “Network”, “ A Face in the Crowd’ and “Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb' ... but 'I Love Cinema' has a contemporary twist with college students dealing with real stuff, an actor from some of your favorite movies and TV shows and musical artists from our slammin’ Hip Hop and R&B soundtrack!
Harris has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $35,000 for production funds.
