Omar Epps, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Mekhi Phifer, Keri Hilson to star in ‘Mooz-Lum’ Director Qasim Basir‘s ‘Destined,’ reports Shadow and Act.

In Destined, a pivotal moment in 13-year-old Rasheed’s life splits off into two possible outcomes: in one, he becomes an up-and-coming architect being used by cynical real estate developers to gentrify and destroy his old neighborhood, and in the other he becomes a powerful drug lord who rules his surroundings but may regret what he’s built.

Production is set to begin at the end of December in Atlanta, with Qasim directing from his own script, Tommy Oliver producing, and Hill Harper executive producing through their new production company, Confluential Films.

Basir’s 2010 film, ‘Mooz-lum,’ centered on an African American Muslim family whose lives are changed by the September 11 attacks and their aftermath. Starring Evan Ross, Nia Long, and Roger Guenveur Smith, the film won Best Narrative Feature at the 14th Annual Urbanworld Film Festival.

Epps recently wrapped his TV series House after eight season and was seen in the VOD musical film, ‘You, Me and the Circus.’ Corinealdi is currently gracing the big screen in her breakthrough performance as the star of Ava DuVernay‘s film, ‘Middle of Nowhere.’ She recently started production on Bille Woodruff‘s latest film, ‘Addicted,’ opposite Boris Kodjoe and Sharon Leal. Pfifer’s last big film was Will Packer‘s 2007′s ‘This Christmas.’ Singer Keri Hilson had a cameo in this year’s blockbuster film, ‘Think Like A Man.’
