Michael Kenneth Williams, Yul Vazquez, Coleman Domingo, Geraldine Hughes and Steve Buscemi round out the cast.

Gere produced with Blackbird Films’ Lawrence Inglee, Caroline Kaplan and Edward Walson, Cold Iron Pictures’ Miranda Bailey and River Road Entertainment’s Bill Pohlad.

Mohammed Al Turki is the executive producer alongside Zak Tucker, Cold Iron’s Amanda Marshall and Eva Maria Daniels.

IFC brokered the deal with WME Global, ICM Partners and Paradigm and plans a 2015 theatrical release for the film.
