ATLANTA READY FOR ‘BATTLE’


Atlanta, August 10-- ReelOne Entertainment announced today that principal photography on BATTLE will begin in mid August, in Atlanta. Award winning director Laron Austin (BEAT MAKERS) will lens the production, based on a script by Martin Kelley and Eddie Singleton. Starring Chris Burns (THE LENA BAKER STORY, SOMEBODIES), Onira Tares (JACK SQUAD) and Introducing Hip-Hop producer turned actor Conrad "HeadRoc" Clifton (Battery Five), Cassius Weathersby (You Got Served) will serve as Executive Producer.  Kelley and Singleton along with Kenno Rixson and Bennie Swint will round out the producing team.

“Battle” is a coming of age drama about an unknown producer RIPPA (Clifton) who pursues his passion for composing music. He wants to produce music for the top rappers in the industry and be respected as a producer worldwide.

His fast–talking manager and best friend JAY (Burns) tries to help him get ahead despite Rippa’s often temperamental attitude. He introduces Rippa to strong-willed student filmmaker MONIQUE (Tares) who wants Rippa to appear in her Hip-Hop documentary. However, this too is met with resistance from Rippa.

He must find his way and his own soul to his creations before he faces off at the Iron Chef Beat Battle competition. 16 talented contestants compete but only one can be left standing at the end of this explosive producers “Battle”.
