We’re big fans of Lowlife here. The film won our hearts while doing its festival rounds last year thanks to its surprisingly great script and cool characters. Andrew even put it on his top twenty of the year. So what I’m saying is, you should probably check it out.
But I’m ALSO saying that I’m very excited to see what Lowlife director Ryan Prows does next. And according to Deadline, that will apparently be a film called Night Patrol. The film will reunite Prows with Lowlife co-writers Shaye Ogbonna, Tim Cairo and Jake Gibson, so there’s even more reason to hope the unique voice of that film will return.
Here’s what Deadline has for a synopsis:
In Night Patrol, an African-American LAPD officer must put aside his differences with the area’s street gangs when he discovers a local police task force is harboring a horrific secret that endangers the residents of the housing projects he grew up in.
That sounds great, but if Lowlife is any indicator, Night Patrol’s worth will be won in execution rather than straight narrative. I’m very excited to see how it goes. Entertainment One will finance and put the film out, so all we have to do now is sit back and wait!
