*Nick Cannon is teaming up with Lionsgate on “School Dance,” out in theaters nationwide on July 2, and we have a behind-the-scenes look on-set with stars Bobb’e J. Thompson (Role Models, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) Lil Duval, and Kevin Hart. Hart and Duval offer Thompson some real talk about being short from two guys who know the struggle.
“School Dance” is an all-out comedy and urban pop take on the classic, West Side Story. The film stars Bobb’e J. Thompson and the best of the best comedy giants like Kevin Hart, Mike Epps, George Lopez, Katt Williams, as well as Wilmer Valderrama, Amber Rose, Melissa Molinaro, Luenell, Lil Duval, and Kristinia Debarge.
Thompson plays high schooler Jason, who has found his dream girl—the gorgeous Anastacia, played by Kristinia DeBarge. There’s just one problem: she doesn’t know he exists.
If he can win a spot on the school’s hottest dance crew, Jason might have a shot. But before he does, he’ll have to overcome his battle-ax of a mother (Luenell), survive Anastacia’s gangsta brother (Valderrama), and pass the crew’s initiation—in this fresh, sexy, and outrageously funny comedy.
Look for “School Dance” in theaters and VOD on July 2!
