Vivica A. Fox (Independence Day: Resurgence) has been cast to star in the independent film Kinky written and directed by Jean Claude LaMarre.  The film is described as “a racy, African-American sex drama, which is being positioned as counter programming to 50 Shades Darker.”  Production will begin in Los Angeles on Sept. 15.

Kinky, is takes place in the affluent community of Buckhead, Atlanta and revolves around Dr. Joyce Richardson (Fox), a talented, yet introverted surgeon at Sinai Hospital, who is struggling with the the fact that she is still single despite all her professional successes.  Her strict Christian upbringing is a constant source of internal conflict, and limits the kind of men she dates. However, upon a chance encounter with handsome Investor Darrin Wethington, she immediately begins a whirlwind romance with the wealthy businessman and entrepreneur. It isn’t long before she begins to explore her own sexual fantasies, and convinces Darrin to join her in S&M sex.  This leads them into further exploration into that world.

Michael Mendelsohn, Jessie LeVostre and Eurika Pratts will serve as producers, and the film is being financed by Patriot Pictures.

Fox had guest star roles on Law & Order, Drop Dead Diva, Melissa & Joey and Raising Hope. She was a regular on the syndicated series Mr. Box Office alongside Bill Bellamy.  Most recently she was cast as Cookie Lyon’s sister in the second season of the Fox series, Empire.  Last month, she reprised her Independence Day role in Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day: Resurgence.  The film was released on June 24, 2016.
