A sequel to the hit Get Shorty, Be Cool finds Chili Palmer (John Travolta) abandoning the movie business and teaming up with his longtime friend (Uma Thurman) to tackle the music industry.
The female lead character named Linda Moon (recording artist Christina Milian) is at the end of her rope, stuck in a cheesy all-girl cover group called “Chicks International” (a Destiny’s Child wannabe) performing covers ala “Lady Marmalade” at the Viper Room. She also has mafioso type manager (Vince Vaughn), thug body guard (The Rock) and record company head (Harvey Keitel). When Linda meets Chili he breaks her away from her shifty management and cover group to write and record her own songs and of course becomes a huge, legitimate superstar. The story ends with her performing at the Grammys.
The soundtrack features two brand new songs from Christina Milian – one written by Alicia Keys and Rich Harrison (producer of “Crazy In Love”), and one co-written by Will.I.Am from The Black Eyed Peas.
Directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Negotiator, A Man Apart, The Italian Job), Be Cool also stars Cedric The Entertainer, Steven Tyler from Aerosmith, Andre 3000 from Outkast, Debi Mazar, Danny Devito, Robert Pastroelli, Anthony Ribustello, Alex Kubik and Kimberly Brown. Movie opens March 4th.
