‘South Central Love’s Christina Cooper Is Gearing Up For a New Project Titled ‘Rising 6’

Just nearly 2 months after releasing and premiering her first feature, Christina Cooper is back at work. The Los Angeles native and her team are currently in pre-production for Rising 6, a superhero movie, which she will produce and direct.

Cooper is breaking barriers by casting talent of various races as the leads. She does not only believe in promoting inclusivity but also creates opportunities for diverse talent in the industry.

Rising 6 will center around six characters from poverty-stricken areas around the world, who are recruited by government officials as experiments. Things will take an unexpected turn when the characters realize their newfound superhero powers – a result of an experiment-gone-wrong. The group will then unite to fight an unruly government in a new age global battle.
