Damon Dash Plans Three Film Projects

damondash3.jpgFormer Roc-A-Fella co-CEO Dame Dash has three film projects in the works, according to a report from Variety. For the first project, Dash will team up with Robert Deniro’s Tribeca Productions and Universal Pictures for a drama based on the life of street legend Larry Davis. Dash says he was inspired to do the film after watching a documentary on Davis, who at age 19 shot and wounded six New York City cops and then eluded a manhunt for 17 days, despite being shot in the head. “In urban culture, Larry Davis is something of a legend,” says Dash of Davis.

Also in development is a fact-based film about a female fight club in Brownsville, Brooklyn where troubled women met up in a makeshift basement ring to pummel each other. The third project Dash has in the works is a biopic on mobster Joe Stassi, who was an intermediary for Lucky Lucicano and Meyer Lansky. He intends to use a documentary filmed by Marc Levin and Richard Stratton as the basis of the feature.

In recent years, Dash has gotten his feet wet in the film industry with smaller budget films aimed at the hip-hop demographic, such as the State Property series and the music-industry parody Death of a Dynasty. More recently, he has had broader success as the producer of the critically acclaimed feature The Woodsman, which starred Kevin Bacon, and this year’s Shadowboxer with Cuba Gooding Jr.

    Double D is max attentive of da situation. Yo, Im havin phone problems, Ill get dat shit squared away real soon.

  • TORRY

    It look like ame doing his thing outside of music. That Shadowboxer movie looks like it might be something worth paying that $9.50 at the movies. and he got that boxing promotion poppin off. he should just stay in that lane because i think it’s gonna be a min before he can have another Roc-A-Fella.

  • bigbaby

    Good for him. Even though I did not feel that way in the past. After Lyor Cohen gave Jay-Z the knife to stick into the back of Dame. He should have stayed true to Dame. If I was Dame I would give Jay-Z the masters for at least $50 million.

  • bigbaby

    In other words, Dame do your thing…

  • Reshonia Porter

    Just wanted to say I’m happy for all the people who got a few dollars from the movie Paid In Full. My father Rich Porter was portrayed and i didnt get a thing not even a copy of the movie. all i got was unwanted exposure. Its real fucked up that i am about to go to college (Hofstra in Long Island) and all of you that got paid is still sitting on the corners giving money to the bums and the weed man. Next time spend your money wisely. I was no secret anybody that knew my father knew he had a daughter. He beat my mom to the hospital to sign the papers he named me and whats fuck up is Dame knew that. I know its not Dame its the family. Whatever,they know who they are and I’m pretty sure everyone of them will pay because no one should have to tell you to look out for the child. Come on even the killa supposed to be my godfather got paid. WOW!!! So not to wish bad on anyone but Damon you need to back track and maybe you will get back on track. Just watch how things go down to people who don’t live right. My future is always going to be ok. I work hard and practice living right every day My mom taught me that and she’s blessed.

    dame and dipset don’t have to worry about destroying the roc, jay-z is doing just fine destroying it himself. young gunz suck, freeway is under used, memphis bleek needs to keep sweeping up the def jam offices, and is tierra marie gone to porn or stripping yet? and tru-life got airred out down here in houston bout those comments about the dipset and the south. talk about a lame ass rapper, that nigga is trash. the dips shouldn’t even waste they time on that corny dude. we all know jay told him to do that. die coc-a-fella, L.A Reid, do yourself a favor and fire jay before koch and atlantic take over.
