(Chicago, Illinois) February 23, 2017: Red Guerrilla Entertainment announced today that production for indie film ‘CANAL STREET’ has commenced. Bryshere Y. Gray (EMPIRE), Yancey Arias (QUEEN OF THE SOUTH), Lance Reddick (JOHN WICK), Katie Chang (BLING RING) Jamie Hector (BOSCH), and Kevin Quinn (BUNK’D) head the cast in the film and have joined together to tell this heart-filled, enthralling, timely story.

Directed, co-written and Produced by Rhyan LaMarr (RESTORED ME) the film is shooting in Chicago, Illinois.

Canal Street is a story about the majority and the frivolous reasons for the deep-seated divisions within it. It’s a beautiful look at the diversity of chicago told through the gritty lense of society. Aided by a universal soundtrack under the leadership of Grammy Award Winning Record Executive Amir Windom (DESPICABLE ME 2, COLLATERAL BEAUTY) that will set the appetite tapping in unison, it sets the table for a much-needed national discussion by appealing to themes of family, friendship, and forgiveness through its multi-cultural ensemble and genre-spanning music. In 2017, America needs a hard detour. Canal Street offers forgiveness. It’s what the majority truly wants, and what will keep the fearful a minority.
