Apparently no files will be charged against Singleton -- the report claims that Ms. Russell was not navigating the road at a designated crosswalk -- but obviously this is tragic news all around. John Singleton is best known for breaking in with Boyz n the Hood. His other films include Higher Learning, Rosewood, Shaft, 2 Fast 2 Furious and Four Brothers. His next project looks to be a crime drama called Tulia, plus he's also been mentioned as the helmer on the long-discussed Luke Cage adaptation.
The Cinematical staff would like to extend its deepest sympathies to the family of Ms. Russell.
