Jumping the Broom from Lunenburg to Theatres Everywhere

Posted: May 5, 2011 

Last summer was a busy season for Nova Scotia when it came to TV and Film productions.  Whether it was series stuff like Haven, or made for TV movies like November Christmas – the province made a marvelous backdrop for many.

"I came to Nova Scotia not knowing what to expect and left eager to find my way back here for another project - I have been singing the praises of Nova Scotia to anyone who will listen." Salim Akil, Director 

Halifax based Magic Rock Productions made the movie that stars Angela Bassett (Malcom X), Paula Patton (Precious), Loretta Devine (Crash), Julie Bowen (Moden Family) and Laz Alonso (Fast and Furious).  Directed by Salim Akil (The Game) - the movie tells the tale of two very different families coming together for one very big event – a wedding.  Mothers, matrimony, mayhem…what more do you need?
