There’s been news going around about a Magic Mike kinda film, except this time, it’s an all black cast. Titled Chocolate City, the movie follows the story of Devin (Robert Ri’chard), a young college student struggling to make ends meet who meets the owner of a male strip club who convinces him to give amateur night a whirl.
Directed by Jean-Claude La Marre, the film stars Robert Ri’chard, Michael Jai White, Tyson Beckford and Vivica Fox.
Director LaMarre (who most recently helmed the “Gang of Roses” movies) says that the project is one he’s been developing for a couple of years, as he researched the male strip club scene, eventually realizing how immensely popular it is.
The movie hits U.S theaters this weekend, but it is not clear yet when (if at all it will) come to Nigerian cinemas.
Watch the trailer below and find out why it’s called chocolate city.
