In the “Magic Mike” type movie, the 24-year-old “Dancing with the Stars” contestant will play Devin, a young college student who’s lured into the world of male exotic dancing to pay the bills.
The New Orleans-bred entertainer previously starred in films like “Jumping the Broom” and “Madea’s Witness Protection,” as well as appearing on TV shows like “Single Ladies” and “Reed Between the Lines.”
Starring opposite Romeo in the flick will be newcomer Eurika Pratts. She will play his girlfriend Carmen, who has problems with her boyfriend’s new career as a stripper.
Set in a male strip club, “Chocolate City” is being shot independently in partnership with eOne Entertainment’s non-theatrical division.
