Lucky Strike films Working on a new project
Lucky Strike Film Studios is working on an awesome new series entitled Mr and Mrs Smith, which is based on the hit movie of the same name.
The series is said to be featuring some of Hollywood's most talented actors.
'America's favourite tv terrorist' Said Faraj is one of the stars in this new series. Said is best known for Green Zone, where he co-starred with Matt Damon.
Mr Smith will be played by star of Undisputed 3, Mykel Shannon Jenkins while Mrs Smith will be played by the talented Stefania Spampinato. Mykel and Stefania are no strangers to each other as they both starred in the 2015 blockbuster The Gods.
Those aren't the only stars in this upcoming series though. It will also star martial art action star Cynthia Rothrock, Russian celebrity LiLian Lev, Dre James, Alexander Man, Carolyn Dupree, Carlitos Dosouto and many more.
The producer Romane Antoine Simon - who some are calling the most hard working film maker in Hollywood - is an inspiration. It isn't public knowledge but Romane didn't come from an 'entertainment' background as his family was involved in politics because his Grandfather was the president of Haiti. He took a big risk moving to the US to follow his dreams. In an interview with Romane - the director/producer of Fason Nou/Our Way, The Night Seekers and Life of Gia - he was quoted as saying "Life is about taking risks. Never give up, always stand up for what you believe in."
This hot new series is still in production but I'll be sure to keep you updated. Check out the facebook page for behind the scenes information

Haiti Kid with camera hits Hollywood
Berverly Hills Canyon News March 2016
HELLO AMERICA!—We have got to face and understand the effect Hollywood has on millions of people all over the world. When they first view those magic moving images in a theater or on a home screen, something happens and suddenly there is an intense desire to see more. On the magic screen, their dreams come true, the impossible becomes very possible and the world they seemed to be stuck or trapped in fades in a kind of fog slowly extracting hope and a sense good things do and can happen.
Obviously, Romane Simon, a young filmmaker connected with this open door to greater creative possibilities in Haiti where each day of his life was met with a storm of political unrest. He was determined to get to the place where he could paint his own screen stories and images he hungered for the world to know about.
Simon finally arrived in Hollywood and quickly settled in an area where many young people find it economical for survival. He quickly made himself known among others who had a similar passion for film which resulted in a new world of cinematic magic. His dream took root and before he knew it, he was yelling “ACTION!” And his filmmaking dance began.
This was only a few years ago and Romane has continually directed short and feature films making the industry feel his artistic power and passion for story-telling.
His latest feature film is “Life of Gia” based on a true story about a girl who loses her family at the age of eight in a car accident. The driver of the car is an out of control drug addict. The young girl is forced to live with her an aunt who eventually dies of cancer forcing her to live with a grandmother who is also dying. Her need is to survive as well as take care of her grandmother who is the last important person in her life on the island; she is determined to find some kind of job in order to make life plausible.
Gia finds a job but it forces her to be around the lowest of the low, drug addicts, women of ill repute which results in her being raped and beaten. The film paints a graphic picture of her desperate determination to create a life of pride and dignity. She manages eventually to do just that; she discovers her own talents and natural intellectual gifts lifting her head on a level of success and dignity she has always needed and wanted.
Simon stressed the point of his story that one should never give up on one’s dreams. Not only that, it is important to consider the life of others before doing something which might result in tragedy. “When you’re very young,” he offered, “it seldom comes to mind certain realities of how your actions can affect the life of someone else. I just hope that my film will at least make people; especially young people become aware of this. Simple as that.”
The film stars Sarah Barker, Alex Mann, Mariela Garriga, Twon Johnson, Carla Shorts as well as a cast of new talented young actors. The film is written /directed by Romane Simon who is an award winning filmmaker and author of bestselling novel “Red to Black-The Power of Love.”
Riverside CA Local News Paper
During a statewide crackdown on human trafficking in California earlier this year, police officials arrested more than 500 suspects and rescued at least 56 people including eleven girls.
As the scourge of human trafficking continues to destroy lives, a team of talented actors from around the world have coalesced in Riverside to tell a story about the impact this issue is having globally.
In a county-owned facility, a former animal shelter turned movie set located on Wilderness Avenue in Riverside, these actors, under the stewardship of Director Romane Antoine Simon, are working on a break-through feature film titled, “I Am Not For Sale,” designed to bring greater public attention to one of the most concerning issues of our time.
Written by Simon in collaboration with award winning film director and screenwriter, Chukwu Lowance, “I Am Not For Sale” exposes the horror of the human sex trafficking industry in a way the writers hope will compel movie goers to work to help end this travesty.
The grandson of a Haitian president, Simon was born into a family that favors politics, yet he wanted to take his life in a different direction. “I wanted to tell quality stories through moving pictures and I came to America to do that.”
When Simon arrived in America the movie industry door was opened for him. “I’ve done a lot of horror and action films and now I find myself doing stories that have more meaning and that can also be a part of changing the world,” he stated.
He described “I Am Not For Sale” as something close to his heart, particularly as a Haitian. “After the earthquake, it was easy for people to come to Haiti and to take kids—the kids just disappeared.” Simon stressed, “I have a lot of sisters and a lot of aunts, and I feel like the world is getting more dangerous.”
He continued, “We have to fear for the females that are in our families. I just wish that women were more respected. You were brought into this life by women,” Simon said passionately, “I think if we all come together, if we want to stop human trafficking—we all have to do our part.”
"OUR WAY" the movie which was produced and Co-directed by Romane Simon is now on Amazon will soon be in more store for purchase
