Chocolate Change: Romeo Miller Out, “Meet The Browns” Star In

Robert Richard previously reported that actor/rapper Romeo Miller had landed the lead role in Jean-Claude LaMarre’s upcoming film  “Chocolate City.”

Now we can report that Miller is no longer attached to the film and actor Robert Ri’chard will play the lead role.

Ri’chard, who previously starred on the sitcoms “One on One” and “Tyler Perry’s Meet The Browns,” will play Devin, a young college student who’s lured into the world of male exotic dancing to pay the bills.

Photos and video from the set have already made its way online, showing Ri’chard performing stripper routines with co-stars Tyson Beckford, Ginuwine and Darrin Dewitt Henson.

Rounding out the “Chocolate City” cast is Michael Jai White, Vivica A. Fox, DeRay Davis, Carmen Electra and Imani Hakim.

The film is set in a male strip club and is being described as the African-American version of “Magic Mike.”   The film is being shot independently by Nu-Lite Entertainment and is expected to be released in 2015 in partnership with eOne Entertainment’s non-theatrical division.
