“How High” star Method Man is taking his Hollywood talents to new heights with his latest move.
This week, Variety reported exclusive news of Method Man teaming up with his manager, Shauna Garr, to form a new production company called “Six AM.”
According to the outlet, the entertainment company is focusing on producing a range of diverse content from untold points of view for all ages to enjoy.
“We aim to tell authentic stories; to be ahead of our time and on time simultaneously,” the company’s website states, “and to engage an audience ranging from youth to the young at heart.”
The company will hone in on projects that will be distributed via streaming and social media platforms in addition to traditional TV and theatrical releases.
Variety shares that the first order of business for Method Man and his new company is producing their newly-sold film, “How High 3” — the long-awaited follow-up to the cult classic original that will reportedly reunite the Wu-Tang star and his partner-in-crime, Redman, on the big screen.
Most recently, the Hip-Hop duo performed live on Verzuz’s platform for their own 4/20 special battle series with guest appearances from rap royalty — like RZA, Inspectah Deck, EPMD and more.
Method Man in the past has been responsible for producing several entertainment projects, including a TV series starring him and Redman as well as Hulu’s “Wu-Tang: An American Saga” — the biographical series based on the origin story of the Staten Island Hip-Hop supergroup.
His manager, Garr, is also an experienced executive producer who helped bring “How High” and its recent sequel starring DC Youngfly and Lil Yachty to life. She began her career in the industry at “Wheel of Fortune” before moving over to MTV Networks as a segment producer for an unscripted magazine show. She’s also has held executive roles at Buena Vista TV and for Amy Heckerling at Paramount TV, according to Variety.
Method Man has been no stranger to TV and film over the years, as he’s been successful at maintaining both a solid rap and acting career. In addition to releasing two albums and several singles over the last five years, he’s been seen in TV shows like “Power Book II: Ghost” and “Teenage Bounty Hunters.”
He’s also appeared in recent films like “Concrete Cowboy,” “Vampires vs. the Bronx” and the 2019 “Shaft” sequel.
