LOS ANGELES, CA -- 247LC Films duo Omar Cook and Adonis Armstrong are set to make their feature film directorial debut with the release of an action packed trailer for their upcoming crime film, LA Undercover.
"We want to bring back the nostalgic cinematic vibe that some of the '90s Black classic films had," said co-director Omar Cook. "This film will showcase a lot of upcoming talent and ultimately fill a void in the crime drama sector that was left with the death of John Singleton."
This film brings back the 1990s Black cinema tone reminiscent of classic movies such as In Too Deep and Deep Cover. Cook and Armstrong are carving a lane for themselves as directors and actors in the film industry with the release of four short films in 2022 that have racked up over 30 awards in festivals across the world. LA Undercover is the first feature coming from this dynamic filmmaking duo.
LA Undercover features a load of upcoming talent, including stars Omar Cook (God of Dreams), Adonis Armstrong (Coke Boys), Clay Cureton (Coke Boys), Ajima Cole (All I Want For Christmas), and Dustin Harnish (Only for One Night). Also appearing in supporting roles are Akin Coley (It's Mitzy!: The Masquerade Ball!), Shala White (Growing Up Chrisley), Marcus Palmer (Trigonus), Brandon Paul Johnson (I Hate My Neighbor!), Sydney Martin (Euphoria), and Gentel Sharrie (Deadly Thoughts).
“A lot of hard work was put into this project to make it special so the industry would take notice," says co-director Adonis Armstrong. "What I expect is to receive major awards from the benefits of our labor here at 247LC."
The film follows Corey Shaw (Omar Cook) a rookie cop in the LAPD with his intentions set on bettering his community. As crime ramps up in LA, Corey must go undercover to take down a cold-blooded crime-lord, Kevin "Keys" Lyles (Clay Cureton). With everything on the line, Corey battles between maintaining his relationship with his girlfriend Sierra Morgan (Ajima Cole), doing his job, and staying true to his identity.
LA Undercover is expected to do a major festival run before heading to streaming. Omar Cook recently entered a distribution deal with Cartel News Syndicate, putting 247LC Films in position to have films on multiple streaming platforms. After watching the trailer, viewers can look forward to a gritty action packed crime drama movie on the way.
