A special screening of the upcoming sequel "I Got The Hook Up 2" is scheduled for Monday at a Newark movie theater, Mayor Ras Baraka said in a statement.
Cast members will also be on hand for the screening, which comes almost a week before the film's national premiere July 12.
The comedy-crime caper tells the story of best friends Black and Blue, who get mixed up in a dangerous scheme to save their restaurant. Cast members Master P, Romeo Miller, Fatboy SSE, Genius Minds, and UMC are scheduled to attend Monday's screening.
"The film is being screened in association with the City of Newark. With many of the cast including Fatboy SSE hailing from Newark and surrounding cities, Master P and Romeo Miller felt it was important to partner with the City of Newark to bring this film to the city before it opens in theaters nationwide," the city said in a statement.
A red-carpet session will be held at 5 p.m. Monday at CityPlex 12, 360-394 Springfield Ave., followed by the screening at 6 p.m.
