  • Amy Smart is the latest to join Sister Cities. Sean Hanish‘s film details four sisters who come back together after the supposed suicide of their mother.

  • Spike Lee‘s musical comedy Chiraq adds another. La La Anthony heads to the Amazon film as Hecuba, a powerful woman in a female gang. Chiraq is a reimagining of Aristophanes’ play, Lysistrata. But instead of the background of Greek warfare, it’ll be Chicago’s gangland. The movie also features Dave Chappelle, Jennifer Hudson, John Cusack, and Nick Cannon. It’s due for a December release.
