THE WEEKEND MOVIE

SYNOPSIS

Derrick, Tyrone & Malcolm live in East London and are college students who have spent their whole college experience being non-existent. It’s the last day of college before they finally move into the real world. They come across some money which was left in an alleyway by some thugs and decide to spend THE WEEKEND like they never have before. They are very outlandish with their spending of the money which alerts the thugs on the whereabouts of their money. The thugs catch up with the boys and give them a deadline of Sunday midnight to return the money they have spent or risk even more problems. The boys do a massive carwash & sell all of their purchased items in order to make the money back. But is that enough or will there be more twist and turns?

GOOD LUCK!!!

I plan on auditioning for the role of 15 year old Carla, because if Kojo can get away with casting himself in the role of Derrick (who is 19), then I’m sure that I will be able to pull off playing a 15 year old.

But on a serious note Kojo doesn’t physically look like he is 19 years old, so I don’t quite understand why he’s cast himself in that role.  Am I the only one that’s actually seeing this??? Wouldn’t it make more sense for him to play one of the police officers, or the homeless character?

Anyway the best of luck to all those who plan on attending the open casting call this weekend.
