Hilarious as always, Chris Rock is bringing that comedic skill he has writing, directing, and starring in the new movie TOP FIVE which was previously titled Finally Famous. The movie stars everyone who is everyone in the comedy industry as the plot centers around Chris Rock playing Andre’, who is on a career shift in his life. He goes from comedy to wanting to hit it big in movies while married to a reality show star played by Gabrielle Union.
Anyway, word is the whole movie is funny all the way up through the end, and as a Chris Rock super fan, I really don’t need to know more about it except…when is the release date? Even though the movie puts Chris Rock at the top of his game, he said it was Eddie Murphy who turned down a role in the film. Bummer or nah? Nah. It still ROCKS.
Chris Rock has proven his skills time and time again, and honestly, I believe he has been underrated for quite some time. Hopefully, TOP FIVE ends up being his BEST yet.
So far, according to Deadline, Paramount is at the front of the line for acquiring this set-to-be-number-one film. Word is that everyone wants in on this ROCK film, but Paramount is in the lead. We’ll see who takes it all in the end.
Who is in the film you may ask? The above mentioned as well as JB Smoove, Kevin Hart, Sherri Shepherd, Ben Vereen, Rosario Dawson and more even reality show star Karlie Redd (she broke into the industry now didn’t she…one Love & Hip Hop Atlanta episode at a time). The cast is truly through the roof. Expect big things because it’s already HUGE.
