Dame Dash says filming for a “Paid in Full” sequel has already started.
According to music mogul Dame Dash, the second installation of the 2002 hit crime drama is upon us. The film has already started filming in Newark, New Jersey. “It’s what happens after [they] put all that work on the street, and somebody had to get that money back,” Dash says of the sequel, Complex Media reports.
The first film featured mega actors Mekhi Phifer and Wood Harris and told a story inspired by the real-life of Harlem drug lord Alpo Martinez. The film earned a whopping $3 million globally. Talks about a sequel seemingly started back in May 2020.
“Actually, a couple hours ago, something we talked about [was] pertaining [to] Paid in Full 2,” said fellow “Paid in Full” star Cam’ron during an Instagram Live session. “I don’t wanna say 100 percent ‘yes,’ but we’re definitely in the talks about doing something similar to Paid in Full 1. … It’s definitely a conversation going on right now about that, 100 percent.”
Dash says there are many aspects of the film that people will soon learn about. “There’s a lot of perspectives that people don’t know. We chose three, really one. Now I’m showing all perspectives,” said Dash. “So you’ll see a perspective from the stickup kids at the time, see a perspective of the younger dudes, I was a younger dude, the 16-year-olds. You’ll see perspectives from Kevin Childs, Jay Black, everybody, Lou Simms. It’s going to be off the hook. Trust me. A lot of other little stories will be told.”
