Monica is an upcoming new feature film from producer Datari Turner, via his Datari Turner Productions, along with Gordon Bijelonic-Datari Turner Films and Imprint Entertainment.

Described as a present-day Indecent Proposal, here's a breakdown for the film:

An engaged aspiring artist couple make a pact in order for Monica to take a job as an exotic dancer to take care of her cancer stricken father. Once the pact the couple made is broken, there lives are changed forever.

The film's lengthy cast list includes: Mariel Hemingway, James Remar, Lynn Whitfield, Omari Hardwick, Carmen Electra, Lisa Raye, Robert Hoffman, Briana Evigan, Nia Peoples, Datari Turner, Omar Gooding, Ali Cobrin, Keith Robinson, Lew Temple, Stacey Dash, Obba Babatunde, Quinton Aaron, K.D. Aubert, Christian Keyes, Wesley Jonathan, Terrell "T.O." Owens, Ron Jeremy, and Dennis White.

If you've seen Dysfunctional Friends, you'll recall that Turner worked with a few of these actors in that Corey Grant-directed dramedy.

Monica is directed by Gregory Carter, from a story by both Carter and Turner.

The film was produced by Datari Turner, along with Gordon Bijelonic and Michael Becker

It's worth noting that this will be the first project that Lisa Raye and Stacey Dash will appear in together, since their Single Ladies break-up.

Principal photography officially wrapped in mid-February. No ETA yet on arrival, but stay tuned...

Datari sent over a few snapshots from Monica, which are embedded within this post.

    I wouldn't pre judge this film before seeing it. Based on Datari Turners track record with other films like Dysfunctional Friends, LUV, Video Girl to name a film the guy is talented and makes great movies

    If you took that synopsis directly from the press release you know it's a hot mess. It's theIr not there. This is straight to video, right?

    I wouldn't pay to see two-thirds of this cast in anything.
