Paramount Classics

Hustle and Flow Premiere

Hustle and Flow, a highly appraised, daring, new film directed by Craig Brewer, and produced by John Singleton (famed for Boyz n the Hood), portrays Terrence Dashon Howard as DJay, a man with buried hopes of becoming a musician after years of dead-end hustling. His struggle to find his voice becomes a wrenching journey to overcome. But, along the way, he receives help from Anthony Anderson and DJ Qualls to create a demo tape that would finally propel him to the top. The film also stars Ludacris as a platinum album rapper and Taryn Manning as a vibrant young woman who sparks DJay's creativity. This passionate yet gritty tale of a small-time Memphis pimp's struggle to abandon an abysmal lifestyle to achieve his dream had an explosive premiere at the Cinerama dome on Sunset Blvd. The cast walked the red carpet as a sea of flashes emerged from photographers. The exciting premiere also drew an all-star celebrity roster including Heather Graham, Seth Green, Eva Longoria, Ray Liotta and many more!
