Casting UPDATES For Sequel To "Gang Of Roses" Reportedly In The Works...

UPDATE 7/29/11: You can thank me later for staying on top of this, because I know you all are heavily invested in this project, and I can't disappoint. So... adding to what I posted yesterday, the woman of the hour, Ms Amber Rose, teased us with another Tweet about the project (yes, I started following her on Twitter now, after she dropped yesterday's news. Somebody's gotta do the hard work, right). This time, she mentioned the name of the character she's playing, as well as who her co-stars are.

UPDATE 7/29/11: You can thank me later for staying on top of this, because I know you all are heavily invested in this project, and I can't disappoint. So... adding to what I posted yesterday, the woman of the hour, Ms Amber Rose, teased us with another Tweet about the project (yes, I started following her on Twitter now, after she dropped yesterday's news. Somebody's gotta do the hard work, right). This time, she mentioned the name of the character she's playing, as well as who her co-stars are.

First, her character's name is Tara X, and her co-stars are Vivica Fox, Mel B & Gabriel Casseus.

Now you know. Yesterday's initial post providing necessary back-story here, follows below:

###############################################################

So... apparently there's a Gang Of Roses sequel in the works, to be titled Gang Of Roses 2: Next Generation.

You asked for it didn't you? Wait, you didn't? You're sure? Well, somebody must have.

And guess who the first cast member is, just recently announced? Amber Rose.

Now, let's just back up a little bit here...

So, there I was going through my Google news feed to find the above photo on Urban Daily which was reportedly tweeted by Amber Rose yesterday. I don't follow her on Twitter, so I missed it. Maybe I'll start following Amber Rose on Twitter now. She's got over 700,000 followers already. What's one more?

Accompanying the tweet were the words "On the Movie set #BountyHunter. Naturally, one would guess that the film she was on the set of is titled Bounty Hunter; but, a little more digging lead me to the Twitter page of producer Eurika Pratts, who's apparently the producer of the sequel, which then lead me to the Gang Of Roses 2 Twitter page (recently created - July 17th was the first entry), confirming that Amber Rose is starring in the film. So, maybe the hash-tag is the role she plays in the film - a bounty hunter.

Producer Pratt has been quite active, producing some 7 feature films, as you'll see on her IMDB page, and all seem to have been released primarily on DVD/home video; though I can't say that I've seen any of them.

I found an IndieGogo fund-raising page for the film, which says Pratt is/was trying to raise $75,000. It says there are 15 days left in the campaign, though nothing has been donated yet. So, either she raised the money elsewhere, or...

So, what to make of all this, other than the fact that I just spent all this time digging up and sharing info on Gang Of Roses 2: The Next Generation starring Amber Rose?

*shrug*

I don't know if it's really in production, or if this is all an attempt to drum up interest in the production (especially with yesterday's Amber Rose announcement), which would then lead to the necessary financing. Rose is a pull isn't she, with 700,000+ Twitter followers. I'm sure her name can get some financiers to drop a few dollars, especially if it's only budgeted at $75,000.

It's called Gang Of Roses, so I assume there'll be more casting announcements coming to make up the rest of the gang.

In the meantime, remember this?
