Columbus Short Stars In New Film ‘The Girl Is In Trouble’

Did we not learn anything from the movie, Phone Booth? Not every call needs to be answered, which someone should’ve explained to Columbus Short’s character in his new role in, The Girl Is In Trouble.

Short plays a struggling Lower East Side DJ named August who answers his phone at 2:30 a.m. to a random girl named Signe (Alicja Bachleda), who he met at one of his clubs.

Scared and in shock, she confides in Short that she witnessed and is involved in a murder mystery centered around a missing drug dealer and New York’s most powerful stockbroker. For Short, the chance call led to a rabbit hole of violence, crime, and the dark underworld of Gotham City headed by a tatted up gangster played by Wilmer Valderrama.

The film is being produced by Spike Lee and directed by Julius Onah who captured the essence of true New York with all its dirt and grime.

The exclusive trailer is below, but definitely check for it on Video on Demand arriving Apr. 3.
