Samuel Goldwyn Films has landed domestic rights to Rachel Samuels’ 1930s-era blues musical “Dark Streets” reports Variety.
Based on Glenn M. Stewart’s stage musical “The City Club”, the story follows a naive playboy drawn into a treacherous love triangle with two blues singers at his favorite nightclub.
Gabriel Mann, Bijou Phillips, Izabella Miko and Elias Koteas star while the likes of Etta James, Natalie Cole, Dr. John, Aaron Neville, Solomon Burke and Richie Sambora perform original songs on the soundtrack.
The project, which earned a special jury prize at this year’s CineVegas, features the first-ever film score from B.B. King.
