I absolutely love hearing when a local does good. Delaware has had a few residents do well in Hollywood and we are always so proud! I may be a Pennsylvania transplant, but Delaware is where I was born and raised. This post is about another Delawarean making it work in Hollywood. Albert Grant is the writer/producer/director and one of the actors in Played. Saturday, May 13th, the Played movie will premier at Penn Cinema in Wilmington, at the Riverfront.
Played was filmed in Delaware, and watching the trailer, it was exciting to see places that I’ve been to. Check out the movie trailer for Played:
A summary of the movie:
Pablo and Joe have been best friends from the time they were children. Pablo is a major drug lord and Joe is ex-military. Immediately after Joe returns home from deployment, Pablo recruited him to protect his assets. However, Pablo and his family were attacked by Pablo’s enemies and a member was lost. Consequently, Joe took this as a personal afront against their family and began the executions. Josh, Pablo’s son felt ignored by his father and threatened by his organization. He took steps to create conflict between the best friends.
Once the movie premier is over on May 13th, Albert will be submitting it to Sundance and other film festivals and will also be going the U.K., Australia, and Africa in August. So, at this time, it is not scheduled for National release. Hopefully, we will hear a date coming up! Make sure to follow along on Instagram with me for pictures of the Red Carpet Event!
If you are in or around Wilmington, you can purchase tickets through Eventbright to this event for $15. It is from 8 pm – 11 pm and sounds like a great time will be had by attendees and hanging out with the cast!
I hope to see you at the Played Movie premier!
