Common, Michael Rainey Jr., Dennis Haysbert, Danny Glover, Charles S. Dutton, Meagan Good, Lonette McKee and Michael Kenneth Williams star in the movie about Woody, an 11-year-old orphan who reveres his Uncle Vincent, a former drug dealer who is trying to turn his life around.
Woody is torn when the temptations — and violence — of his uncle’s old world return.
Sheldon Candis directed the movie, which he wrote with Justin Wilson, according to Reuters.
Indomina plans a theatrical release in the fall, followed by a broadcast premiere on BET. [Watch a clip from the film below.]
“‘LUV’ is a highly engaging film with resounding performances from a brilliant cast,” Indomina vice chairman and CEO Jasbinder Singh Mann said in a statement. “It has everything we look for in a film and we believe it will resonate with audiences.”
Indomina also picked up Ice-T’s performance documentary “Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap,” this year at Sundance.
