I LOVE BOOSTERS IN THE WORKS; STARTS FILMING IN OAKLAND IN AUGUST

“I LOVE BOOSTERS,” the next film directed by Boots Riley, who made his film debut in 2018 with “SORRY TO BOTHER YOU,” will be released. Production on this new Neon-produced project is scheduled to start in Oakland, California on August 15, 2024.
Keke Palmer plays Corvette, the head of the Velvet Gang, a bunch of female shoplifters, in the movie. Living in the kitchen of an abandoned church, Corvette and her friends make ends meet by “boosting” department store purchases. Christie Smith, the CEO of a designer business that has pilfered the design of a Corvette, is their most recent target. The Velvet Gang decides to take down Christie as a result of this theft, unintentionally starting a revolution.
For this movie, Riley, who also wrote the screenplay, is working with producers Andrew Swett and Aaron Ryder. The casting director is Rebecca Dealy, and the cinematographer is Natasha Braier.
Riley’s earlier work, such as the Amazon series “I AM VIRGO,” has won praise from critics for its distinct aesthetic and social commentary. With its captivating story and impressive cast, “I LOVE BOOSTERS” looks to carry on this tradition.
 Riley, the film’s director and writer, has a distinguished history in music and filmmaking. Riley was born on April 1, 1971, and he started the revolutionary hip-hop group The Coup in 1991. Riley has also recorded albums under the names Street Sweeper Social Club and The Coup. “SORRY TO BOTHER YOU,” his feature debut, was widely praised for its uniqueness and Riley’s singular vision when it debuted at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
Riley signed a TV script deal with Media Res in July 2018. He revealed “I’m a Virgo,” a seven-episode television series starring Jharrel Jerome, in June 2020. On March 11, 2023, the show made its South by Southwest debut. On June 23, 2023, it was made available on Amazon Prime Video. Riley and Media Res agreed to a two-year overall TV contract in 2021. Boots declared his support for Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont in the 2020 U.S. presidential election in February 2020.
The talented singer and actor Keke Palmer will breathe life into the role of Corvette. Born on August 26, 1993, in Harvey, Illinois, Palmer has been in the spotlight from a young age.  She made her big-screen debut in “Barbershop 2: Back in Business” and has since acted in films like “Akeelah and the Bee,” “Madea’s Family Reunion,” and “The Longshots.” Palmer has also been known for her musical talents, releasing multiple extended plays and contributing to several soundtracks.  In June 2023, she was invited to join The Academy as an actor. Palmer appears in Usher’s music video for his single “Boyfriend,” released on August 16, 2023.
“This Is Me… Now: A Love Story” is a 2023 American romantic drama musical film. In addition to Keke Palmer as Scorpio, Jane Fonda, Fat Joe, Kim Petras, and Lopez feature in the film.
Fans of Boots Riley may look forward to this new film, which promises to merge his unique flair with a captivating story of rebellion and resilience. Be remember to check out tvacute.com for additional updates and info on “I LOVE BOOSTERS” and other upcoming films.
