Two weeks before its stand-up pic Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain opens in theaters, the distributor founded by Jeff Clanahan has acquired U.S. rights to the romantic drama Things Never Said. The pic is written and directed by Charles Murray, who is making his feature debut after a decade in television. Shanola Hampton stars as an aspiring poet in a dangerous marriage who dreams of taking her work to New York. A surprise new love (Omari Hardwick) helps her find her artistic voice. Brian “Skinny B” Lewis produced the film, which is executive produced by Nicole Elliot, Steven LaBroi and Geofrey Hildrew. Codeblack Films, the Lionsgate unit that recently acquired Sundance drama The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete, will release Things Never Said this year.
