LuckPig Studios and writer/director Thomas K. Phillips are proud to announce the addition of Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr. as a Producer of THE NORTH STAR. Dr. Chavis joins with cast members Jeremiah Trotter, Clifton Powell, John Diehl, and Lynn Whitfield in a compelling film that dares to tell the true story of freedom through the eyes of an escaped slave.
