Los Angeles Based Multi-Award Winning International Female Independent Film Writer, Director and Producer Sarah B. Downey, Has The Entertainment Industry Focused On SUNDANCE and Her New Film "Tunnel Vision", Featuring Music Recording Artist G-EAZY
By: Sarah B Downey
Sarah's newest film "TUNNEL VISION" is a biopic starring music recording artist G-Eazy and David Labrava of hit FX television series Sons Of Anarchy, and based off the real life of Antonio Salvatore Servidio, one of the biggest hip hop promoters for the last 20 years, that also gets his hands dirty in a slew of other activities.
G-Eazy plays the lead role of a handsome Italian male by the name Johnny Russo, whose character captivates us with his stunning good looks, and his no bullshit attitude.
The hip hop world needs clarity of organization to tame the wild beast, and Johnny Russo is the “tamer”.
However, underneath the surface of this glamorous entertainment business lays a storm of guns, drugs, counterfeit money, hard fist manipulation, and assault of integrity.
Johnny hustles the streets in more ways the one – he has his hands in the counterfeit money game, the gun game, the drug game, and ultimately, his most infamous hustle, the rap game.
A rebel with a cause created and fueled by money leads us across America’s highways until he goes to Federal prison, we see a reformed Johnny Russo making his money legit in the realm of concert promotions, only to find out that the worst crook of them all is his white collar attorney, Robert French.
Sarah stated that G-Eazy has always had a thing for movies and acting, his audiences first became aware of his acting talent in his music videos Me, Myself, and I, Let's Get Lost, Marylin, and of course, I Mean It.
