Auditions Aug. 28-29 for urban Christian drama

Reaves producing urban Christian drama based on Las Vegas minister C. Regi Rodgers’s memoir

Parris Reaves of HAWKfilmz Enterprize, who produced the recent “Ran$sum Games,” was hired to produce the under-$1 million urban Christian drama “Playa2Praya,” for Las Vegas-based Manifest Destiny Ministries Productions and Atlanta-based DDL Entertainment.

The director is Darryl D. Lassiter, who is best known for his 2000 independent drama “Pay the Price,” based on his own experience in Alabama State University’s marching band.

In 2003, Lassiter and executive producer David L. Gough unsuccessfully sued 20th Century Fox over similarities between their film and the studio’s release “Drumline.”
