There was no “Waiting to Exhale” as the men had their say at the preem of Screen Gems’ “The Brothers” Wednesday at the Loews Century Plaza Theater.
“It’s a movie that everybody can relate to because it’s about love,” said star Morris Chestnut. Writer-helmer Gary Hardwick makes his directorial debut on the pic, which he said combines, “comedy, romance and drama.”
Chestnut and D.L. Hughley agreed the leading men, including Bill Bellamy and Shemar Moore, had great chemistry. “I still miss working with those guys,” Hughley admitted.
Bellamy said he was attracted to the project because his role allowed him to expand beyond comedy. “The role was funny and serious.”
Among those on hand were Sony’s Ben Feingold and Jeff Blake; Screen Gems’ Clint Culpepper, Stacy Kolker, Val Van Galder and Benedict Carver; pic’s Tatyana Ali, Tamala Jones, Jenifer Lewis; plus guests Halle Berry with Eric Benet, Don Cornelius, Taye Diggs, Ron Isley, John Singleton and Snoop Dogg.
