On the low down with what happened to the No Limit movie called Down Low. One of No Limit Films lesser known movies.

Not many people know or are aware that a No Limit Films movie called Down Low was filmed. Only hardcore longtime No Limit fans know about this drama movie. This is one of the rarer No Limit Films movies that was hardly ever advertised anywhere. Even online.

The movie Down Low told the story of an undercover police officer who is out to bust arms dealers with ties to corrupt police officers and CIA agents. His plan was to bust arms dealers who sell illegal firearms.

The movie was scheduled to be shown in theaters sometime in 2000. However that never happened and the movie remains unreleased to this day. There was an even a soundtrack for the movie which also remains unreleased.

Here is what happened to the Down Low movie.

On December 9, 1999, Master P’s No Limit Films production company signed a multi-movie deal with Trimark Pictures. The deal stipulated that Trimark would fund a minimum of 5 No Limit movies. Trimark was to help to market and distribute these No Limit Films movies. Down Low was one of those movies under the new agreement with Trimark. The movie was to feature starring Master P, Silk the Shocker, C-Murder, Gary Busey, Romeo, and A.J. Johnson. Master P was to have executive-produced the movie.

However Master P shifted his focus on producing the Lockdown movie instead because that was his initial focus at the time he signed the deal. So Master P halted the production on Down Low and canceled the movie in 2000.

There was a higher demand for Lockdown as that movie was promoted heavily from 1998-2001. Fans were looking forward to seeing Lockdown than they were Down Low or Hoop Fighter. Promotion was another issue along with timing. Down Low would have been shown in theaters around the same Lockdown would have been. That would have created a conflict of interest. Down Low was hardly promoted at all while Lockdown was heavily promoted.
