Filmed in Atlanta, “Super Turnt” is a coming of age film centred around rapper Rilla (Jamal Woolard) who is released from prison and finds his immediate world has changed but the streets’ dangers remain the same.
After realizing that his common-law wife is not in love with him anymore, his only mission is to be a father to his son.
Rilla knows that signing with the record label Turnt will put him back on top and in the position to take care of his family.
“Super Turnt” is directed by Mann Robinson (BET’s ‘Troubled Waters’) and also stars Harry Lennix (The Five Heartbeats), Jamal Woolard (Notorious), E. Roger Mitchell (The Walking Dead), Duane Finley (The Wood) and Rapper Scarface.
Known for her powerful role as Mamie Till in the film “Justice on Trial”, Lunden De’Leon has starred in over 50 movies and television shows including Hulu’s “12 Dog Days Till Christmas”, Sweet Home Carolina”, “Vital Signs”, “The Lake House” and Netflix’s “Blackbear” to name a few.
Being a successful woman of colour in the film industry may seem impossible compared to other non-African American and/or male actors, but De’Leon didn’t let this stigma weigh her down.
The South Carolina native was mentioned in the Hip hop-based magazine “The Ave” as “one of the most significant women in entertainment.” The magazine covered many stars such as Mona Scott-Young and Beyoncé.
Although the industry has changed over time, De’Leon explains how she has found her “happy spot” and how she feels like as a woman she has a good place in the industry even though it wasn’t always that way.
De’Leon’s greatest achievements were being nominated as “Best Leading Actress” for her role in the film “Pure Justice,” where she plays a well-known attorney at a prestigious law firm in the state but is accused of illegal and unethical practices.
Even with ups and downs in the industry, she explains how being recognized is worthwhile and how she almost fainted when she got the news from the producer.
“At one time, to get steady work in this industry as a woman and to be acknowledged for it was almost unheard of,” says De’Leon. “Nowadays, women are getting out and creating our own opportunities instead of waiting for one,” continues De’Leon.
The ”Super Turnt” movie is scheduled for release in 2021.
