Add another movie to the list of films with black casts that will have theatrical releases this year, because Rel Dowdell’s Changing The Game will hit theaters in early May. The independent film will start in Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, Washington DC, and Atlanta, but expand to more cities later with an R rating.

The drama stars relative newcomer Sean Riggs in the lead role, as well as Irma P. Hall, Tony Todd, Suzzanne Douglas, and Kirk “Sticky Fingaz” Jones from the rap group Onyx. The film’s synopsis calls it “the gripping story of two childhood friends from a gritty North Philadelphia neighborhood who choose divergent life paths but find themselves facing the same risks and, quite possibly, the same ending.”

I think the trailer probably says more about what to expect from the film than anything, so check it out!

Will you see this one?
