Has a person ever died of suspense? Because that’s what a whole country’s worth of Muslims are feeling right now, particularly the ones in the Metro Detroit area of the United States.

The first of its kind film created by and for Muslims in America is on it’s way to the people. It is anticipated that MOOZ-lum The Movie will be breaking down stereotypes and educating the (Muslim) masses in the process.

The movie is the brainchild of a young Muslim man who’s family currently resides in Ann Arbor. Qasim Basir is a Wayne State University graduate and a budding writer and director. Needless to say he is doing big things.

MOOZ-lum features old time favorite Danny Glover and the beautiful Nia Long as two of the main characters. The film will portray a Muslim family and their task to stay Muslim in America in light of the family splitting apart and polarizing.

The trailer launch party, to take place online, will happen Sunday August 8th. Get the details here.

So, is it possible to die of suspense? Hopefully no one who wants to see the movie will die until after MOOZ-lum actually premieres!

*Note- The title of the movie is an allusion to the incorrect way that many non-Muslim westerners refer to Muslims. The authentic way to refer to followers of Islam is ‘muus-lim’. Oh, just how it sounds? Yep.(examiner.com)
