Successfully writing, directing and producing the hit film, “You Got Served” (which grossed 48 million in the box office, generated over 100 million in revenue and began the worldwide dance phenomenon), Stokes has shown the industry that he has a proven record of commercial success. The two films “Somebody Help Me” and follow up sequel “Somebody Help Me 2” combined, helped the BET network and sponsors generate huge rating numbers on the channel, and also gross over 4 million in (DVD) home entertainment and television profits. Recently MTV Network shot a pilot of Chris Stokes’ family and businesses called, “Different Stokes.”
He recently released his pint version of “You Got Served” called “Battlefield America” this past June. The Stokes helmed horror flick “The Helpers” is set to hit theaters early 2013 which is sure to be a box office smash!
Stokes is now getting set to announce his third film. Sources say that the film will be an urban comedy set to release some time in 2013 but that’s the only information that is being released at this time. With Stokes track record as a director the new film promises to be a success!
