Behind the scenes with some of the cast of "November Rule"

Kali HawkMacy Gray, DJ Qualls, Tatyana Ali, La La Anthony and Mo McCrae are among the cast members of the Queen Latifah-executive produced feature film November Rule.

Described as a romantic comedy, the film will tell the tale of a man who makes a "November rule" (hence the title) to stay away from women, even if he's in a relationship when each November comes around. So he routinely ends relationships in November (if he's involved), or keeps his distance from women (if he's not involved), until, as you can probably guess, meets the woman of his dreams, while still strictly adhering to his "November rule," loses her, and then has to do everything he can to get her back.

No word yet on what actors are playing what specific roles - the male and female lead especially. 

The feature film will be directed by Mike Elliot (The Devil Rejects) - who will produce as well - from a script penned by Candice Childress and Juwan Lee.

Queen Latifah will exec produce under her Flavor Unit Entertainment shingle.

    Unless it gives away the movie, would be nice to know why and or how he came up with the "November Rule".

    With all due respect, the talent involved in this project—writers, director and actors—is looking weak at best. If we keep making films like this, we can't complain next January about a lack of Oscar noms. Hopefully, this film will surprise us. Otherwise, Netflix indeed!

    Now, Marie, you can't make a level-headed, clear-thinking business assessment like that. Else be labelled a "hater" by the fine readers of this site. Why can't you just blindly support all black film? You'll find life easier that way.

    NETFLIX anyone?

    1. Has a ball player husband

    2. Colorism ( color matters for most black folks in the media business)

    Good concept. Hope everything else is on point.

    Ugh, La La Anthony is so freakin annoying. She's in every black film lately.
