Deitrick Haddon's Sophomore Film "A Beautiful Soul" To Be Released On DVD 08.21
Posted: Wednesday May 30th, 2012
Grammy® Award nominated recording artist Deitrick Haddon has carved out a new niche in his career as a serious actor. He made a splash in 2010 with his starring role in Blessed & Cursed that has aired on The GMC Channel and Showtime.
In early May, Tyscot/Manhaddon Films and Releve Entertainment launched Haddon's second major film role with the release of the movie, A Beautiful Soul. Initially opened in select AMC Theater markets such as Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, New York City and Haddon's native Detroit for a weeklong engagement but the film was extended for a second week due to huge public demand to see the film.
In A Beautiful Soul, Haddon stars as Andre Stephens, an R&B superstar who loses his spiritual compass. The prestigious film industry trade magazine, Variety, summed it up in this manner:
"In what is probably the first-ever mashup of Charles Dickens and R&B, `A Beautiful Soul' stars gospel singer Deitrick Haddon as a bling-wielding, self-centred Scrooge whose wakeup call arrives via a bullet, and whose redemption involves a divine iPad (with an app for after parties past, present and yet to come) by which he learns to change his ways."
On August 21st, 2012 Tyscot Films will release the PG-13 Rated film on DVD.
Directed by Jeff Byrd ("Soul Food" TV series), the film also stars Harry Lennix ("The Matrix Revolutions"), Robert Ri'chard ("Coach Carter"), Lesley Ann Brandt ("Spartacus: Gods of the Arena"), and Barry Floyd ("The Game").
