Queen Latifah and Shakim Compere's One Unit/Flavor Unit have partner with Freestyle Releasing to distribute "The Man In 3b".
Carl Weber is one of a handful of African American authors who consistently appear on the New York Times bestseller list year after year. With 18 New York Times bestsellers to his credit, Weber moves from novels to films with his adaption of the sexy mystery The Man in 3B. Weber's screenplay brings to life the secrets and surprises surrounding Daryl Graham (Lamman Rucker) and the cast of colorful neighbors who reside in his Queens, New York apartment building. In this tale of mystery and murder, we watch as the lives of Weber's carefully crafted characters are turned upside down, each for different reasons, but all of them having something to do with Daryl Graham. From his extremely good looks to his undeniable swag, Daryl is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be. The Man in 3B is an expertly woven New York Times and USA Today bestselling urban tale.
The Man in 3B was also honored earlier this year by the Pan African Film and Arts Festival in Los Angeles with the "Capri Partners Award."

"I am excited to see The Man in 3B come to life as a film," says Weber. "We have put together a great team of creative experts who have welcomed my input. Being a part of the script writing and production process has been a phenomenal experience, and moving from writing novels to writing and visualizing stories for the screen has proven to be a natural progression. I look forward to the success of The Man in 3B and to the future of Urban Books Media."
