Celebrity cast of Christopher Nolen's 72 Hours

Christopher Nolen’s star studded romantic comedy 72 Hours will start filming locally in June.

In 72 Hours, a reformed womanizer, Cleavon “Von” Burkett (Timon Kyle Durrett) was living the good life with a beautiful wife and dream job- until one day he wasn’t. With his health taking the back burner in his busy lifestyle, it soon catches up with him as he’s faced with God (Harry Lennix) himself after a heart attack. In an attempt to bargain for a second chance at life, Von has 72 hours to right the romantic wrongs he’s made to all of his exes. With the help of his best friend (Brian Hooks) and the determination to live, Von embarks on a hilarious journey to seek redemption and soon realizes that heaven nor hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

72 Hours stars Timon Durrett, Terri J. Vaughn, Brely Evans, Erica Hubbard, Harry J. Lennix, Brian Hooks, Cynda Williams, Tangi Miller, Chyna Layne, and Thea Camara.

Chicago’s own Christopher Nolen holds many titles as an American director, producer, writer, actor, and model. His highly anticipated film, “The Good Life” made its debut on the BET (Black Entertainment Television) network in January and now plays on a monthly rotation. His other awaited film “Four Seasons” will premiere later this year.
Nolen founded Nferno Productions in 1998 and his work with the company has won several awards including Best Urban Thriller and Best Director.
