Lionsgate will distribute comedy Frakenhood, the first film from Morgan Gendel, Jeremy Littman and ex-Wall Streeter Jonas Littman’s Anvil Studios.
The film, starring DeRay Davis, Charlie Murphy and Jasper Redd, completed principal photography over the weekend. Music video helmer Blaxwell Smart is directing from a script by Dan Filie.
Also starring are kickboxer Bob “the Beast” Sapp, Drew Sidora, Angell Conwell, Hassan Johnson and Danny Cistone. Anvil is producing the film in association with Content Foundry Partners.
The comedy revolves around two morgue workers eager to win a local streetball tourney. Their chances are zero to none, until they enlist a large corpse who has been brought back to life by a surly mad scientist.
