In Hollywood, they say if you don't see movies or roles out there that properly represent you, write them yourself. That's what filmmaker Cess Silvera did with his latest film, Overtown, which is set to film in Miami this month.
Silvera, whose previous work includes Shottas (2002) and G.E.D. (2009), likes to write, direct, and produce his films, and Overtown is no different. The filmmakers are keeping most details under wraps. But LaShawnna Stanley, who did the casting for the film, can promise two things: It'll be a true-to-life Miami tale, and it'll star Chad Johnson, the artist formerly known as Chad Ochocinco.
