In other movie news, is there a new black male super model on the rise?  Possibly.

Former Model Tyson Beckford has been replaced by newly minted model, Keith Carlos, in the upcoming sequel to Chocolate City.  Yes, some type of way that movie got the sequel treatment.

Carlos, who was the winner of the Tyra banks-produced show, "America's Next Top Model," reportedly lobbied hard for the role in the upcoming film and squeezed Tyson out.

Meanwhile, both men MAY have some history. According to sources, the twosome allegedly haven't had the best supportive relationship in the business.

Our source tells us:

"Keith always looked up to Tyson as an older model, but Tyson always felt threatened by the comparisons. Before winning America's Next Top Model, when Keith had modeling shows and reached out, Tyson would ignore his calls".

Oh?  According to Chocolate City casting director, Vanessa Walkowiak, the replacement was due to the need of fresher meat.  Vanessa said in a statement:

"The producers felt that we needed some younger blood in the franchise. They love Tyson, but felt Keith brought everything Tyson had plus a certain youthful energy."

The first film went to BET.  Will you be watching the sequel?
