David Banner Prepares His Debut Short Film

David Banner

This Friday, Mississippi rapper David Banner will make his return to the silver screen with an appearance in Lee Daniels’ The Butler, in which he’ll play the lead character’s brother Earl Gaines. As he continues to build upon his extensive acting resume, though, Banner told XXL that he’s working on a short film of his own. In a phone conversation earlier today, Banner said, “I just shot my own short film, it’s called Walking With God.” While the release date of the project hasn’t yet been confirmed, he might capitalize off of his recent presence in the press by putting the project out this weekend. He explained, “I may chop it up and release it the day after The Butler comes out. I’ve been holding it for the right time, and I think this would be a great opportunity.” Stay tuned for news on Walking With God, and in the meantime make sure to check out The Butler when it hits theaters on August 16.
