My longtime (YLJ) friend my high school, Cassandra Freeman is co-staring with Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster, and Willem Dafoe in Spike Lee's in production film, the Inside Man set to be released in March 2006.
Cassandra co-produced, originated and wrote The World According to Keith "an irreverent and revealing look at the life, work and art of Keith Johnstone, master of improv comedy and inventor of Theatresports." The World was directed by Arlene Rimer and produced by Executive Pictures Inc.
"Washington stars as New York police detective Keith Miller," according to Blackfilm, "a tough, street-smart cop fighting for a promotion while trying to live down accusations of misconduct connected to his last case."
"When he and his partner are dispatched to the scene of an in-progress bank robbery and hostage crisis, Miller must face off against a well-educated criminal (Owen) masterminding a concisely plotted operation."
"As negotiations grow more strained, a powerful lawyer with mysterious ties (Foster) becomes involved in the crisis... and Miller slowly begins to realize that in this ultimate game of cat and mouse, rules are arbitrary, all roles are up for grabs and the black-and-white of right an wrong has blurred to a shadowy landscape of gray."
