Aletha Campbell and her husband, Andrew Campbell, the two masterminds of Smooth Fusion Films, behind the award winning screen play “Somewhere in Baltimore” have just released a movie trailer to another box office hit, “Crossed Lines.”
The movie is to premier late summer of 2016 and according to the creative duo this movie is filled with action pack and will keep its viewers on the edge. According to the Campbells, if you think “Somewhere in Baltimore” was good, wait and see, because “Crossed Lines” is said to be over the top. You can expect the same quality as “Somewhere in Baltimore.”
“I’m the type of person when I do something I put my all into it; I give my 100 percent. I don’t like to do stuff and look back and say ‘I should have done it this way.’ I always think things through and make sure it is done properly and put it out there so when people see it, they can be satisfied,” stated Mrs. Campbell.
However, this second feature film is still under wraps as shooting is still taking place. From Liberia to Nigeria, Senegal to Kenya, Guatemala to India, Jamaica to Hollywood, “Crossed Lines” boasts a cast representing more than a dozen countries, who came across the casting call from online websites.
Led by award-winning producer Aletha Campbell, directed by award-winning director Carlton Whyte, and written by African Oscar award-winning screenwriter Andrew Campbell, the cast is headed up by Hollywood’s Joseph Gannascoli (The Sopranos), veteran actors Charles DeLong and Dashaun ‘Jiwe’ Morris, along with upcoming stars Tristan Masi and Senegal’s own Fatou Thiam.
Meanwhile, following up their very successful introductory film, “Somewhere in Baltimore,” they step it up with an story of four individuals on four very different journeys. Drama ensues as their lives intersect. McNeil, a DEA agent with a massive chip on his shoulder, has very little respect for any law aside from his own. Billy is an over-aggressive, alpha male, who has a constant need to feed his endless appetite for money and power.
Truth, a low-level dealer and struggling rapper, does whatever he needs to do to get him in the studio. Naja has a good life. She uses drugs socially from time to time but is under endless pressure from Aminata, the only person she has left in this world, to live a more carefree, party girl lifestyle.
With futures in the balance, choices have to be made and those choices will have great consequences.
According to Mrs. Campbell, “people pay money to watch our movies and we don’t want them to pay their money to watch and then they regret. That’s why when I am working, I always put my all in all,” she shared.
