Back in 1997, director Theodore Witcher presented Love Jones. The romantic drama starred Larenz Tate, Nia Long, Isaiah Washington, Bill Bellamy, and Lisa Nicole Carson.
Nia Long and Larenz Tate will reunite at Creative Collective NYC’s fourth annual CultureCon, according to Variety. The Creative Genius conversation takes place on Saturday, October 8.
Love Jones is considered a cult classic among some fans. A generation of movie-watchers holds fond memories of the poetry-themed love story between Darius Lovehall (Tate) and Nina Mosley (Long).
The New Line Cinema release grossed $12.5 million at the domestic box office. Love Jones: The Music soundtrack hosts classic R&B tracks such as “The Sweetest Thing” performed by Refugee Camp All-Stars featuring Lauryn Hill.
Past speakers for CultureCon include Will Smith, Tracee Ellis Ross, Michael B. Jordan, Billy Porter, and Keke Palmer. This year’s NYC edition features screenings, networking events, panels, and more.
