Meek Mill is set to make his cinematic debut in the Sony Pictures Classics film, Charm City Kings. An adaptation of Lotfy Nathan’s 12 O’Clock Boys documentary, the drama is helmed by award-winning filmmaker Angel Manuel Soto and features Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith as executive producers.

Charm City Kings follows Jahi Di’Allo Winston as Mouse, a 14-year-old boy who dreams of joining Baltimore’s infamous dirt bike rider group, Midnight Clique. Mill portrays Midnight Clique leader Blax who takes Mouse under his wing to learn the ropes. Mouse is eventually exposed to the violence and easy money that comes with being part of the crew, forcing him to choose which path he really wants to take in life. Will Catlett, Teyonah Paris of Mad Men, Donielle Tremaine and Marvin Raheem will join as the supporting cast.

Watch the full trailer above. Charm City Kings premiers January 27 at Sundance and hits theaters April 10.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Bong Joon-ho has confirmed that HBO’s Parasite limited series adaptation will be an extended film rather than a remake or sequel.
