About ``The Wood''

Paramount Pictures presents ``The Wood'' in association with MTV Films and Bona Fide Productions. ``The Wood'' is an ensemble comedy about Mike (Omar Epps), Roland (Taye Diggs) and Slim (Richard T. Jones), three twenty-something friends who reminisce about growing up in Inglewood, Calif., as Roland faces pre-nuptial jitters. As the day unfolds, we flashback through Mike's eyes to the trio's childhood exploits, capturing the nostalgia of the era and reliving their youth through the great beats and lyrics of the unforgettable '80s hip-hop music.
