Variety broke that Dash and Short will be working on multiple different projects and the stories certainly garner some attention.
Current projects include “The List,” “A Shot For Justice” and “Black Dots,” a story written by Short and the late Lee Thompson Young about a group of high school outcasts who take their school hostage. Short and Dash are also collaborating on “Ellis D,” a biopic on Major League baseball player Dock Ellis, who’s best remembered for pitching a no-hitter while under the influence of LSD
Other than Scandal, Short has worked on projects like ‘Stomp The Yard’ and ‘True To the Game’. While Dash has also has spent a fair share of his time producing movies as well. Films that are deemed classics in Hip Hop culture like ‘Paper Soldiers’ and ‘Paid In Full’. Their repitoire has us less-than-concerned about their ability to produce great content.
