Chicago-based (and proudly from Englewood, he’ll tell you) filmmaker Mark Harris has come a long way. After making and self-distributing several locally-made feature films such as Black Butterfly and I Used to Love Her, Harris has moved up a notch, and has now written, produced and directed his first Los Angeles-set feature film, starring name actors, titled Black Coffee.

Lamman Rucker, Erica Hubbard, Darrin Dewitt Henson, Gabrielle Dennis and Christian Keyes all star in a film that tells a story of what happens when Robert (played by Henson), after being fired from his own father’s company, feels that he’s reached the end of his rope.

Well that is...

... until Morgan (Dennis) enters into his life. But just as things start to heat up between them, trouble brews as Morgan’s ex-husband (Rucker) vows to get her back and Robert’s gold-digging ex-girlfriend (Hubbard) returns with an agenda of her own. With the help of his cousin (Keyes), Robert’s about to find out how much good can come out of a bad situation.

One Village Entertainment is set to open the film on January 10th, at AMC Theaters in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago and Washington D.C.

And needless to say, if the film does well in those cities, it’s certain to expand to others as well.

Here’s the trailer:

    A movie where two black people fall in love with each other. I could have sworn that was illegal now. I'm glad the people behind this film didn't get that memo.

    Not sure I get the title??? But I am a fan of both Christian Keyes and Gabrielle Dennis so will try and catch it.

    This film looks charming...but not enough to make ppl flock to the theaters, it will go to DVD

    Why does this seem kind of bleh...I like all the actors, though. I might check it out if it comes to DC.

    You know - i loved where it was going (lacked a little bit of umpf) up until that title popped up. It just sealed the cheese.
