Basketball 3:16: When You`re Open to Be Freed, God Allows You to Receive
This uplifting spiritually based movie is filmed on the streets of Oakland, California. The script, inspired by the writer`s life, was written by Pharoah Charles Powell and directed by Ramasses Head.
Basketball 3:16 elicits faith, evokes the belief that God can find you anywhere, and advocates that change occurs when you least expect it; even on a basketball court.
Basketball 3:16 is an Urban Christian Drama that follows Kevin `K Money` Warren`s release from prison to his embrace of life through God`s word and faith.
Jamesha Warren, K Money`s sister: played by Ronique Marshall, becomes concerned about her brother and encourages him to embrace the lord through church and prayer.
K Money, mistrusting others and knowing only street life, is rigidly skeptical of the idea until he`s introduced to the God Father of the streets Calvin Nichols: played by Pharoah Charles Powell.
Calvin, who also struggled on the streets but turned his life around, shares his journey to enlightenment in hopes to spark curiosity in K Money and show him that he too can make the change.
This film features many up and coming actors. The lead character Kevin `K Money` Warren is played by: Big Spence who has been crowned Be that `Kid` celebrity of the Year 2010.
Big Spence also recently finished two feature films; the first being `Moneyball` with Brad Pitt and the second `On the Road` featuring Kristen Stewart from the Twilight series.
Big Spence (K Money) was excited when he was approached to be the lead in this film because of the positive message: It`s great to see such a positive message that`s real to life, and it`s refreshing to know that one no longer has to bring "Hollywood to Oakland because it`s already here." Other actors supporting this film are: Brian Hooks who plays Derrion Nichols, he`s known for the film "3 Strikes;" Lakia Bailey who plays Kiana Smith, she`s known for the reality show Real "Chance of Love;" Wight Out who plays a group member, he was crowned `Bay Area` comedian of 2010; Ronique Marshall who plays Jamesha Warren, she`s known for the reality show `The Way It Is;` Jo`nez Cain who plays Constance Thomas, she`s known for Discovery Channels new show "Cuff me if You Can;" and Pharoah Charles Powel who plays Calvin Nichols.

having faith, patients, and realizing everything is possible in God`s time and not our own.
