We’ve learned a few details about upcoming film Destined In an article from Indie Wire. The film will star Omar Epps, Mekhi Phifer, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Keri Hilson, Michael Rainey Jr., and possibly a few more familiar names.

The plot revolves around a life altering decision made by 13-year-old Rasheed. If he takes one path, he becomes an architect contracted by real estate developers to gentrify his old neighborhood.

If he takes the second path, he becomes a drug lord who rules his neighborhood.

Here’s a longer synopsis from the Official Destined Facebook Page:

In one world Rasheed Smith is a hardened criminal who has spent years building his drug empire. In another, he is an ambitious architect who has been working his way up the corporate ladder. Uniquely illustrated through parallel lives, Destined explores how one mans future can be changed by a single moment. Facing everything from street violence to corporate corruption, Rasheed navigates his role in each world while demonstrating that on any path, life is never simple in the journey toward fulfilling your destiny.

The film will be produced by Hill Harper and Tony Oliver’s production company Confluential Films.
