Meagan Good’s First Directorial Debut Will Be Sisterhood Film If Not Now, When
Slowly but surely, actress Meagan Good has been evolving in Hollywood.
From You Got Served, playing a character named Beautifull, to portraying Lorie, a relatable young woman caught up in the glitz and glamour of video vixen life in Video Girl, Good has been doing pretty well lately at choosing lanes that expose her real acting chops.
And now, the Hollywood actress is choosing a different lane. She will be sitting in the director’s chair for the first time for the independent film If Not Now, When.
According to Deadline, the 36-year-old will also star in the picture next to first-time co-director Tamera Bass and actresses Mekia Cox (Half & Half) and Meagan Holder (Pitch).
If Not Now, When is written by Bass who describes it as a story about sisterhood and camaraderie among four friends – Good, Bass, Cox and Holder. As high school gal pals, they are bonded by an event that happens which causes them to reunite fifteen years later when one of them faces a crisis.
Production begins this month in LA, and for Good’s first time calling the shots on set, she will be working with some really talented artists.
Valarie Pettiford (Being Mary Jane), Edwin Hodge (The Purge), Kyle Schmid (The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants), McKinley Freeman (Hit the Floor), Niles Fitch (This is Us), Todd Williams (The Chicago Code) and newcomer Lexi Underwood will co-star in the flick.
Good is also producing the film with Bass under their Krazy Actress Productions banner.
Good luck to Good on this new flex of creative muscle!
