Ice-T Film ‘Equal Standard’ Coming to Digital June 8, Disc July 6 From Mill Creek and Mutiny

The Ice-T film Equal Standard will debut theatrically May 7, on digital June 8, and on DVD and Blu-ray July 6 from Mill Creek Entertainment and Mutiny Pictures.

Taheim Bryan’s writing and acting debut inspired by his life experience, the film tells the timely and politically charged story of police in New York City struggling with race, rank, betrayal and loss. Directed by Brendan Kyle Cochrane, the story is an billed as an unflinching — and unbiased — lens on the lives of police and the community they’re called upon to protect, and what happens when that covenant goes sideways, offering a perspective from both sides of the law.

Equal Standard stars Ice-T (New Jack City, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), Naughty by Nature’s Anthony “Treach” Criss (“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “The Sopranos”) and Robert Clohessy (“Hill Street Blues,” The Wolf of Wall Street).

“There are people who have never dealt with the cops’ brutality or it doesn’t happen in their community,” Ice-T recently told Entertainment Tonight. “What I hope is all the protesters take [the lessons from Equal Standard] with them in their day-to-day life, and when they see racism or they see something wrong, that they step up against it as one person.”

The film was an Official Selection at the Durban International Film Festival; a Best Trailer Nominee at the Paris Art and Movie Awards (PAMA); a Screenplay Semi-Finalist for Taheim Bryan at the Evolution Mallorca International Film Festival; and an Official Selection at the Black Film Festival Los Angeles.
