"There's nothing that he has that we can't take." Imani Motion Pictures has debuted a trailer for a crime drama titled True to the Game, based on the novel of the same name written by Teri Woods. The film is about a charismatic drug lord, played by Columbus Short, who falls for a young girl from Philadelphia. He begins planning a way out of the crime world with his love for her, but tragedy strikes just as he is about to start his new life. The entire cast includes Vivica A. Fox, Andra Fuller, Nelson Ellis, Draya Michele, Jennifer Freeman, and Starletta DuPois, plus introducing Erica Peeples as Gena Hollins. This trailer looks solid, with some promise in the performances more than anything else. Might be worth a quick look.
