Marlon Wayans is racking up the talent for his upcoming spoof, 50 Shades of Black. The actor has recruited some familiar faces for the comedy, including Mike Epps, Affion Crockett and Kali Hawk — who will play the young woman "drawn" to Wayans's character Christian Black.
Filming for the spoof comedy has begun in Los Angeles, with Wayans starring in, writing and producing the film. 50 Shades of Black is scheduled to hit theaters early next year.
Meanwhile, Rosario Dawson will join Katherine Heigl for Unforgettable, a female-centric thriller that is the directorial debut of veteran Hollywood producer Denise Di Novi. Dawson will play a woman struggling to start a new life with a new husband and his daughter, but finds herself tormented by the man’s manipulative and mentally unstable ex-wife (Heigl).
Watch our sit-down with Dawson talking about her last film, Top Five, below:
