Detroit Director Dennis Reed II Hits Two Home Runs with New Films in March

Published

on

As an active author, director and producer, Dennis Reed II stays focused on the next big thing – and now the next big thing happens to be his own work. The Detroit-based multi-talent is closing out the first quarter of 2021 with accolades with two of the most viewed films on Tubi – Indictment: Who Is Jonathan Carter?, which was originally released Summer 2020, and He Said She Said, which premiered on the popular streaming service earlier this month. The films hit #1 and #2 the week of March 15, respectively, and closed out the week of March 21-26 in the Top 10 and Top 20, respectively.
Reed’s current success with his own DRII Productions is shared with Homestead Entertainment, a premier film distribution company which launched in 2020. Homestead is celebrating yet another success in March as the film Antoine Allen-directed movie Lola also hit Tubi’s most viewed list, sitting presently in the Top 5 on the service. As Spring sets in, Reed is currently finalizing First Lady 3, the third installment of his popular film series starring Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander. The movie will premiere on Tubi in May, and more projects are currently in the works.
Indictment: Who Is Jonathan Carter? is centered around the mystery of family man Jonathan Carter, who he is and what he really does day-to-day. The web around Carter’s alleged criminal activities is an intricate structure, which won’t be easily unraveled. The movie stars Jennifer Williams of VH1’s Basketball Wives,  artist / entrepreneur Benzino of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, actor/rapper K Deezy, and multi-faceted entertainer Lemastor Spratling. Indictment also features appearances from actress Velda Hunter, teen rapper Que9 and Las Vegas-based MMG artist Yowda.

He Said She Said tells the tale of a young couple wrecked by lies, cheating and uncertainty. Add in a nosy best friend, persistent exes, and overly-concerned family members, and count on some explosive drama. Adapted from Dennis Reed II’s original stage play, the rom-com stars cast members from the original play, Lemastor Spratling and Velda Hunter; along with Juju Cee, known best for her appearance in VH1’s Love & Hip Hop New York; and actors including Chris FlannoganMena Monroe, and Kaamel a.k.a. Diezel.

“Having both the number one and number two films at the same time is amazing, definitely a win for our teams at DRII Productions and Homestead,” Reed says of this exciting time. “The recognition feels good because I’m fully independent, leveling up with the big boys. It’s incredible to be able to create and film dope movies right here in Detroit, and see people appreciating them.”

Homestead co-founders Leonard Burnett and Rob Johnson are on the same page with Dennis Reed II as they celebrate a strong first quarter. “Homestead was founded on the premise that talented filmmakers of color are often not presented with the same opportunities to share their art with the world. The popularity of Dennis Reed’s He Said, She Said and Indictment films, and Antoine Allen’s Lola confirms our long-held belief that there is a strong appetite for diverse, compelling, and original content. It is exciting to watch audiences experience and enjoy films that may have previously gone under the radar. We are thrilled to be at the forefront of bringing new and original voices to the screen.”

C5’s brand new video for “Fool For Love” (Outta Luck) begins revealing a distant couple unwilling to find solace. Ready to give up and pour his heart out one last time, C5 finds himself giving up on love unable to find common ground. As the video progresses it only seems to get worse…

C5 is a dynamic, conscious, innovative rapper & songwriter from Oakland, CA who prides himself on making music that is an honest representation of his life experiences. His music tells the story of what it’s like to be from the streets while remaining true to oneself and fighting for a life better than the one he’s experienced growing up.

C5 has toured as an opening act for Chance The Rapper, Snoop Dogg, Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, Usher, Bryson Tiller, E-40, and performed with Royce Da 5’9. He has features with notable artists such as Marty Grimes, Rexx Life Raj, Chevy Woods, Adrian Marcel, and Mistah F.A.B.

“Fool For Love” (Outta Luck) is off his latest project Swimming With A Pisces. The project gives us a look inside the mind and emotions of a Pisces male and brings out the introspective and vulnerable side of C5. On Swimming With A Pisces, C5 takes us on a journey inside the struggles he’s faced not bending his morals in a world full of deceit and betrayal. Throughout his career the young creative says he may not have been as openly vulnerable as he could have been. Instead, he has made music with popular content that was expected of him. With features from Chevy Woods and Adrian Marcel, Swimming With A Pisces is based on true events and delivers songs you can ride to, cry to, party to, and inspire you.
