    Thanks for keeping us informed Rye. Does Justin like J2 better than acting, or do you have no idea?

    No problem. I don't know if he likes one more than another. He's said in the past that he would still like to act but he's very interested in the behind-the-camera aspect too so my guess would be that he likes them both equally.

    Nope, this (or the Jerry Garcia project, depending on which one is developed first) will be the first feature film from J2 Pictures, however it's not the first film Justin has produced. He was a co-producer on the film, Romance and Cigarettes, which has been released in the UK I believe but is still awaiting a US release. That film was not produced through his production company though.

    Thanks for the news. I would think he likes J2 more than acting, we have heard a lot more from J2 projects than his acting projects after all.

    Im glad to see Justin (and J2) finally do something again. Hope these movies do good, and I also hope Justin makes a film that he himself will star in.

    Here's a snippet from the May 28th Las Vegas Sun, indicating there was quite a competition for the film rights to this woman's life story:

    "Shortly after her booking, movie producers Justin Berfield and Jason Felts arrived [in Las Vegas] with a contract they hoped Payne would sign. About 20 other producers were also in town, Felts says, in search of her autograph.
    Payne's signature on the contract will bring $150,000 and 2.5 percent of the movie's net profit, she says. Now she hopes to stay alive long enough to see it."

    Another encouraging aspect of this project is that the creative collaborator is in place--Eunetta Boone will write the story. She's a veteran creator/writer/producer of black-themed comedies (her sitcom One on One had a five-year run on UPN). The Jerry Garcia biopic project is not as far along, as no creative team is yet in place.

    This Payne woman had such a colorful "career" as a jewel thief, it would be hard not to make an entertaining movie of her life. Her life was a long series of slick con jobs and slippery escapes; she'd pop up in exotic places--Paris, Monte Carlo. She had an eye for quality, stealing just a few jewels of very high value. Her technique was to smooth-talk people into letting down their guard--jewel merchants, halfway-house guards. The role will be a stellar vehicle for a first-rate black actress, or actresses (her escapades spanned five decades). I'm very much looking forward to this movie. (And it would certainly be nice if Justin cast himself in a small but "meaty" role in it!)
