Ving Rhames, Henry Simmons Join Taraji P. Henson In “From The Rough”

imagesimages11

Ving Rhames and Henry Simmons have joined the cast of the Taraji P. Henson sports drama From the Rough – a project we alerted you to couple of weeks ago.

Pierre Bagley is producing and directing the project, which stars Taraji as Cassandra Turner, a fictional character based on a real-life character, Dr. Catana Starks, whose story is at the center of the film, inspired by true events; specifically, the first female head coach of an NCAA Division 1 golf team, is presented with an opportunity to create a men’s golf team at an HBCU, but is forced to recruit white and international players, when it becomes obvious to her that there aren’t that many college-age black golfers. Of course, drama ensues.

Simmons will play the college’s snooty athletic director who bumps heads with Turner.

Rhames will play a maintenance man at the college “who knows everything about everyone on campus.”

Kevin E. Hooks is executive producing.

Shooting is scheduled to begin in October, in New Orleans.
