LaMarre wrote and will direct the feature for his Nulite company, alongside Gabriel Casseus, Robert Aaronson and Rozina Negusei of Zanar Entertainment.

“This movie was in gestation for 2 1/2 years, but after Magic Mike it seemed a natural fit for the African-American female audience,” LaMarre told Deadline about the film. “I researched the male exotic club scene and it’s massive across the country, with clubs specifically targeting middle-aged African-American women.”

Right now, the filmmaker has partnered with eOne Entertainment’s non-theatrical division for the film, but hopes that it can evolve and see a wife theatrical release as well.

Production starts on the movie in Los Angeles in June.
