Looks like the Wayans Brothers won't come riding to West Oakland's rescue after all. The bros, who had flirted with the idea of building a film studio and then a shopping and business park on the city's half of the old Oakland Army Base, bowed out of the deal on Friday, according to the Chron. Meanwhile, Mayor Ron Dellums said the fact that other companies are now interested in doing something with the blighted land is "a tremendous vote of confidence for Oakland's economy."
