Steve & RJD, thanks. Sounds like one I'll be wanting to see!
Here's a writeup that may stir some interest without revealing much of the plot:
"It's a casting story that might one day inspire a biographical feature film itself. Newcomer Derek Luke, discovered working in the gift shop on the Sony Pictures lot, has nabbed the coveted lead role. After auditioning hundreds of actors for the role, producers chose Luke to play the title character based on the life of the film's writer Antwone Fisher, a former security guard on the Sony lot. Luke was first discovered by Fisher, now a working screenwriter, when Fisher dropped by the gift shop on the Sony lot where Luke has worked for nearly four years. Fisher then brought Luke to the attention of the film's producers — Washington, Randa Haines and Escape Artists' Todd Black — who met with him several times before making their final decision. Black and Washington then surprised Luke at the gift shop to offer him the role. (Hollywood Reporter)"
