It's highly likely that Chicago-born comedic actor Kel Mitchell paid a little homage to his hometown with the title of his latest movie, Chicago Pulaski Jones. Mitchell stars as "Chicago Jones," a dancer from Chicago who "is forced to avenge the death of his uncle." He also co-wrote and co-produced this lighthearted comedy.
You won't be able to see Chicago Pulaski Jones on the big screen, though--this one's headed directly to the likes of Netflix and other DVD outlets. But for comedian Cedric the Entertainer, who co-produced, directed and co-stars in the movie, "straight-to-DVD" movies no longer have the stigma attached to them they once did and in the end, can prove to be advantageous for independent films. In a recent Miami Herald article, the comedian noted, "We're going to do this as a small DVD and digital release, mainly," and "create this model for independent filmmakers to be able to kind of get their films done for low, economic prices."
No release date for the DVD has been set yet--see below for a sneak peek:
