and Antwan Patton
, better known as Outkast
, are doing big things! With their staring role in the upcoming film, “Idlewild
” (which is set to be in theater’s Aug. 25th
) the two seem to be exploring other opportunities. Director, Bryan Barber
is actually a long-time associate/friend of Andre Benjamin
and had discussions of putting out a musical since Outkast’s
” released back in 1998.
Though critics are giving this film ‘mediocre’ review’s, saying that, “Idlewild” can’t decide if it’s about bullets, booze, broads or the sound of hip-hop”, observes, Peter Traves of Rolling Stones; Emanuel Levy of EmanuelLevy.com admits that the film displays a “hot score” of “raw talent”. Yeah, though the critics have come out the bag, “Idlewild” still doesn’t seem like it will be a total disappointment.
