Koran Dunbar received confirmation that he is “doing the right thing” when he met with Spike Lee last month. Lee offered some reassuring words of advice to Dunbar, writer/director/producer/actor of the film “Greencastle”, filmed in and around the town by the Greencastle-Antrim High School graduate.

Lee confirmed in the beginning there is no logic to dream chasing, but just have faith because work ethic and a supportive crew will get you a long way. This is proving true as Dunbar and crew have sold out the Maryland Theatre in Hagerstown, Md. for the local red carpet premiere for the film, three weeks early.

The film will premiere at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 31. Live interviews by NBC will begin at 6 p.m. The red carpet event will kickoff at 6:30 p.m. The doors to the theatre will open at 7 p.m.

Guests will be entertained by renowned comedian Quevaughn Bryant at 7:30 p.m. Also entertaining the crowd on the red carpet will be international entertainer DJ Bizzy. He is a G-AHS graduate traveling from Los Angeles, where he has numerous Paramount Pictures, Warner Brother Pictures and Sony Pictures world movie premiers to his credit.

Adding to the excitement will be Sofia Samrad (TV anchor at Fox 5 WNYW-TV New York/host at SpeedLADating/CEO, clothing designer and editor-in-chief at Digitalebas), Shawn Quinn from WQCM 94.3 and Kyle Roberts from Shippensburg University's SUTV hosting the red carpet.

Questions and answers will begin shortly after the conclusion of the film.
