Leads a Gang of thieves in “Because I Love You”
Houston, TX (July 16, 2012) – Actor KENDRICK R. SMITH (Serpent) stars as the leader of a gang in the suspenseful action drama. With his strong, evil eyes, this type of man kills for no reason other than to watch a man die. It turns him on like no woman could.
From Writer/Director Joseph Elmore, BECAUSE I LOVE YOU is a love story in the greatest sense of the phrase. It is about unconditional love, between a man and a woman, friends, family and especially the love of a mother and her child. When all hope is gone, who would YOU fight to live for?
BECAUSE I LOVE YOU is the story of CREAM, a beautiful young exotic dancer torn between good and evil. One night at the gentlemen’s club where she dances, the club is robbed and she is taken hostage by a group of wild animals. She is driven to an undisclosed location and brutalized repeatedly. Feeling like all hope is gone; it is the love of her daughter that keeps her alive. BECAUSE I LOVE YOU also stars “Half & Half” sitcom star -- Chico Benymon, VH1's "For the Love of Ray J" reality star -- Courtney Cameron (Jaguar), “The Great Debaters” movie star -- Donny Boaz, internet, video and magazine superstar -- Esther Baxter, Comedian & YouTube sensation “S*&t Black Girls Say”-- Billy Sorrells and former Cash Money Recording Artist -- Just Brittany.
SMITH is excited about what this film has to offer to audiences. “Playing role of Serpent was exciting and great to be able to do my own stunts in a Crime/Drama Story. Most definitely a must see.” KENDRICK R. SMITH
