A movie about money, sex, power, corruption – and somebody getting fed to alligators… The official trailer has arrived for Bayou Caviar, the crime drama that my production company Fireshoe produced!
Bayou Caviar is the directorial debut of Cuba Gooding Jr. (best known for his Oscar-winning performance in Jerry Maguire and his recent turn as OJ Simpson in the award-winning mini-series American Crime Story).
In Bayou Caviar, Gooding plays the lead role of a boxer in the twilight of his career grappling with a dangerous and corrupt situation involving the local crime boss, portrayed by Academy Award Winner Richard Dreyfuss (Mr. Holland’s Opus). The ensemble cast also includes powerful performances by Famke Janssen (X-Men franchise) and Katharine McPhee (Scorpion). Filmed in New Orleans, the movie will be released in select theaters and on Video-On-Demand on October 5, 2018.
Prior to the release, I’ll post another blog with some fun behind the scenes stories. For now, check out the trailer.
