NEWSFLASH! An up & coming Atlanta filmmaker is hoping to bring New Edition‘s story to the big screen.
Being a lifelong of fan of New Edition and then finally being able to witness firsthand, the immense talent of the group, last year at a concert in Atlanta, Bobby Huntley was filled with the same exhilaration and excitement that was swelling around him.
This talented young director knew it was time for New Edition’s story to join the echelon of other legendary music biopic films, such as: ‘The Five Heartbeats’, ‘The Temptations’ and the Oscar winning film ‘Ray’.
Huntly has created a trailer called ‘NE Heartbreak – The New Edition Story’ as a precursor to the film and hopes that his team will one day be able to turn his vision into a full feature film.
More details + watch the ‘NE Heartbreak’ trailer below…
Huntley has created a ‘movement’ to get the word out about his dream of turning New Edition’s story into a feature film. He writes:
”This preview was created with no budget, only hard work and dedication in the hopes that a seed of inspiration was planted in other aspiring filmmakers and storytellers to go after their dreams.
If we don’t tell our stories, then who?”
The casting in the trailer is a bit sketchy, but I’ll give him a pass being that there was no budget. Other than that, I think he did a great job!
Huntly writes via his NE Heartbreak – The Movement website:
NE Heartbreak The Movement is a “labor of love” mission, set up by a creative team of New Edition fans, to produce an authentic biopic, that will tell a sincere and honest narrative, of the lives and journey of New Edition. NE Heartbreak The Movement has already put together a “sneak peek” trailer for you to enjoy and our main objective, is to be the production team entrusted to tell the story of 6 young men, who had a dream of success, happiness & music. The New Edition story deserves to be told , YOU can help us tell it and here’s how:
If you are a true admirer and die hard fan of this amazing group, then you are already a part of this movement; just help spread the word that ‘The Movement’ is here.
My job is done. I’ve spread the word. The rest is up to you. 🙂
Is the world ready for a New Edition movie?
