In the film, Banner will play the role of a character who has been wrongly acquitted of a crime he did not commit. Romeo will take on the role of Banner’s character’s son, Jalen. As Jalen, Miller will depict the experiences of a young man who has grown up without a father figure in a Los Angeles neighborhood plagued with danger and conflict. The character is faced with a considerable hurdle when his close friend becomes indebted to an influential drug-dealer.
The film, based on the stage play titled I Never Heard My Father Speak by Tamera Hillcast, will feature familiar faces Karrueche Tran, Robin Givens, and Dijon Talton. Of the film’s potential reach, Director Josh Webber shared, “I think this movie will really resonate with many families worldwide. In life we are constantly faced with choices and each choice you make has their own set of consequences. Never Heard teaches us that sometimes we may make the wrong choice yet it is never too late to change your course and find the righteous path.”
The movie is expected to be released on November 1, 2018. You can watch the trailer below.
