There’s a new film in the works that’s about to stir up some emotions next year, and it has an amazing cast, so it’s definitely going to be what I love to call a “must see”!
Actor/Comedian Brandon Scanavich will be starring in and producing a new film along beside Love & Hip Hop Hollywood’s cast ‘Lil Fizz’ and Actor Marc John Jefferies who is best known for his roles in movies such as, ‘Losing Isaiah’, ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’ and recently, ‘Nerve’. The film titled, ‘OUT OF BOUNDS’, is about a high school senior basketball player by the name of Travis Elliot (Lil Fizz) who has hopes of one day playing college basketball and making it to the pro’s. However, circumstances reroute his plans, and he is no longer chasing a dream but running from a harsh reality!

“The idea came to me during a pickup game while I was at my church gymnasium. We actually turned the ball over and lost the game because a teammate ended up stepping out of bounds. It was just so amazing to me at that moment how you could be so close to victory, and how it could all change by crossing a small line. Same thing with life, you can be so close to the place you desire and one small step in the wrong direction could change your entire life!”
Of course a great movie needs an amazing cast and some amazing producers to capture viewers. We were happy to discover that Actor Marc John Jefferies would be directing the film. Scanavich gave us some insight as to how they came into working together for the film.
“Me and Marc John have been friends for some time now, we’ve worked on a few projects from the acting standpoint and he has taught me so much about dealing with this industry. When I started writing ‘OUT OF BOUNDS’, I’d say about ten pages into the script, I knew I wanted him to direct. I called him up one day while he was out in Miami shooting, and I said “Yo MJJ, I got a script”, and he replied “Let’s Do It” and it was on from there.”
Scanavich added that movie lovers will be able to relate to the film because it makes you really think about your life and the choices we make.
“Choices, Why do we make them? The film teaches you why its so important to make the right ones and how making the bad ones can effect you and the people around you!” – Scanavich
I think we all know from experience that one bad choice can lead to a host of problems.
Scanavich states that this is his first film, and even though he has done several Indie Projects, Short Films and more, none compare to this magnitude of a film!
After teaming up with Starrdom100’s writer and producer Tanisha D. Davis and S.D. Green of TMG Firm in New York, Scanavich landed ‘Lil Fizz’ as the leading star of the film! Many know Fizz from his appearance on multiple seasons of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood and as a member of the R&B group B2K. Fizz has also starred in ‘You Got Served’ (2004) and recently released a new book, ‘No Excuses: Being The Father My Son Deserves’. Scanavich shared with us why he saw Fizz as the perfect match for the role.
“I saw Something in Fizz from the jump, his image, his character and the fact that he is a natural ball player just put the icing on the cake for me, and I couldn’t have had a better person for the job.”
The film, ‘OUT OF BOUNDS’ is scheduled to release the Summer of 2018 and we are looking forward to seeing what Brandon Scanavich and Marc John Jefferies have cooked up for us!
