For all you “Honey” fans out there, get excited…. “Honey 2” has started production in Los Angeles.
If you’re a “Vampire Diaries” fan, the news that Katerina Graham will play the lead in “Honey 2” should really sweeten the pot.
“Honey 2” is directed by Billie Woodruff (“Beauty Shop”), who brought the first “Honey” (starring Jessica Alba, Mekhi Phifer, Joy Bryant and Lil’ Romeo) to the big screen in 2003. “Honey 2” is slated to premiere exclusively on DVD in the fall of 2011.
The second installment “takes audiences into the complex world of street crews who express both their individuality and community through an awe-inspiring array of dance styles including b-boy, turfin’, hyphy, morphing, gliding, popping, locking, salsa and jazz, among many others.” Graham plays 17-year-old Maria Bennett, who re-discovers her love of dance at her childhood rec center after a brush with the law.
Graham will be joined in “Honey 2” by Randy Wayne (“Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning”), Seychelle Gabriel (“The Last Airbender”), Christopher “War” Martinez (“Bring It On: Fight to the Finish”), Brittany Perry Russell (“CSI: NY”), Tyler Nelson (“Stomp The Yard 2”), Luke Broadlick (Britney Spears “Circus” tour, “Step Up 3-D”), and Melissa Smith (“The Pussycat Dolls Present: the Search for the Next Doll”).
