Whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Wrong.
Ghanaian actors John Dumelo and Yvonne Nelson are teaming up with Haitian Hollywood heartthrob Jimmy Jean-Louis to bring their own kind of trouble and suspense to Sin City in the upcoming film, One Night in Vegas, which is still under production in the US.
One Night in Vegas tells the story of a couple who decide to go away for a while after a long drawn out court case involving the husband’s (Dumelo) business.
They go to Vegas and going along with them, under cover, is a US government special agent (Jean-Louis). There are infractions aplenty and for some reason what happens in Vegas unfortunately does not stay in Vegas.
Extremely excited to be a part of the project, Jimmy Jean-Louis describes it as a "great experience and a film with lots of potential". The star intends to expand his work within Africa and with African filmmakers as a way of supporting the growth of the industry and its crossover appeal.
Also starring in the film is Sarodj Bertin, Miss Haiti Universe 2010.
One Night in Vegas is produced by Kobby Maxwell and directed by John Uche.
Van Vicker also makes a special guest appearance in the movie.
