'Humboldt Park' soon to hit the big screen

Actor Freddy Rodriguez

Found out last night that filmmaker George Tillman, Jr., who attended Columbia College but hails from Milwaukee, begins filming a Latin-flavored Soul Food entitled Humboldt Park at the end of January or beginning of February. Expect him to use a lot of those cool restaurants, coffeeshops and bars in that 'hood as background. John Leguizamo (Love in the Time of Cholera) and Freddy Rodriguez (Grindhouse: Planet Terror) will star.

You may remember Tillman as the force behind such hits as Barbershop, Barbershop 2: Back in Business, Beauty Shop, Men of Honor and, of course, Soul Food.
