Michael Jai White & Tyson Beckford To Star In Male Stripper Movie ‘Chocolate City’

Published: Wednesday 21st May 2014 by David


Two years after the release of the Box Office sizzling ‘Magic Mike’,  game-changing supermodel Tyson Beckford and ‘Arrow‘ actor Michael Jai White are in talks to star in an African-American take on the same concept with ‘Chocolate City.’

Pop open the lid below…

Scheduled to start shooting in June, the movie has called on both stars to tell the story of struggling college student Devin, who meets the owner of a male strip club (White) who offers him a way out of financial woes with paid stripping work.

This, much to the dismay of Beckford’s character whose fading star is overshadowed by the arrival of the fresh, fun and thong-fetching newbie.

On the project, director Jean LaMarre told ‘Deadline‘:

“This movie was in gestation for 2 1/2 years, but after Magic Mike it seemed a natural fit for the African-American female audience.I researched the male exotic club scene and it’s massive across the country, with clubs specifically targeting middle-aged African-American women.”

Yet to announce the name of the actor set to portray Devin, Deadline reveals that the movie is yet to be picked up by a studio but will be shopped with a strategic rollout geared towards Urban markets in mind.

    There’s already a ‘Chocolate City’ though and the actors are hotter than both Michael Jai and Tyson Beckford.
