Jim Jones is off to a great July. He’ll star in a new movie called First Lady.
According to a recent report via ScoopB.com, Jones will play the role of Mike, a big-time drug dealer who ran one of the biggest drug empires in the nation.
When Mike dies, he leaves the business to the love of his life, Maria. Maria, whose role is played by actress Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander, is met with resistance as she fights to earn her respect among the industry elite. But her discovery behind the people responsible for Mike’s death threatens to unravel everything.
“I’m excited to be a part of First Lady,” Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander said in an interview.
“First Lady has a lot of depth and I really think you guys are going to like it.”
Author, playwright, and producer Dennis Reed II is the director of the film. Love Logan, a 20-year industry vet, is the films executive produce
The month of June was not kind to Jones. According to a recent report via Billboard, Jones was pulled over in an SUV in Georgia’s Coweta County for various drug and guns charges while on his way to perform at a concert in Alabama. A backpack was allegedly discovered by law enforcement containing marijuana, Oxycodone pills, Percocet, THC oil, a pair of pistols and $148 in cash. Jones was released on $7,000 bail.
“I just hope people keep that same energy when my lawyer does what he needs to do to clear up everything,” Jim Jones told Angie Martinez last month. “If anyone knows me, they know I don’t move like that.”
As for the First Lady film, seems like this is great news for the former Love & Hip Hop Star. According to VH1, First Lady also stars Royce Reed of VH1’s Basketball Wives Miami, Drive Angry’s Julius Gregory, comedian Mike Bonner and model Kendra Kouture.
