EXCLUSIVE: Fresh off of Fox’s Independence Day: Resurgence, Vivica A. Fox has just signed on to star in the indie feature Kinky from Chocolate City writer/director Jean Claude LaMarre. The project is described as “a racy, African American sex drama, which is being positioned as counter programming to 50 Shades Darker.” The film is currently in pre-production and will roll in Los Angeles on September 15.

The story is set in the affluent community of Buckhead, Atlanta and follows Dr. Joyce Richardson (Fox), a talented, yet introverted surgeon at Sinai Hospital, who is struggling with the fact that she is still single despite all her professional successes. Her strict Christian upbringing is a constant source of internal conflict, and limits the kind of men she dates. However, upon a chance encounter with handsome Investor Darrin Wethington, she immediately begins a whirlwind romance with the wealthy businessman and entrepreneur. It isn’t long before she begins to explore her own sexual fantasies, and convinces Darrin to join her in S&M sex. This leads them into further exploration into that world.

Kinky is being financed by Patriot Pictures with LaMarre’s Nulite Entertainment serving as co-
producers on the project. Producers include Michael Mendelsohn, Jessie LeVostre and Eurika Pratts.

Fox is repped by agent Sheila Lagette at Media Artist Group.
