Vanessa Simmons Lands Lead Movie Role

Vanessa Simmons, Rev Run’s eldest daughter, will sharpen her acting skills in the upcoming romantic comedy, My First Loves. Simmons has scored a role as the leading lady in the film, which will be directed by Dominga Martin and produced by Monty Ross, who has produced films like She’s Gotta Have It, Do The Right Thing and Malcolm X.

“I fell in love with the very candid story of one girls quest to find true love, a story I can relate to quite well,” said Simmons in a recent interview. My First Loves will begin production this summer in Atlanta and New York City.
