IFC Films has acquired North American rights to the Sundance indie dramedy titled Predisposed, which Tracy Morgan stars in, along with Melissa LeoJesse Eisenberg, Tanya Wright, and Isiah Whitlock Jr.

In the film, Morgan plays a hapless drug dealer named "Sprinkles" opposite Eisenberg's character, who happens to be a piano prodigy; the film centers around their relationship.

Co-written by Philip Dorling (he directed it as well) and 1994 Oscar-nominee for Philadelphia, Ron Nyswaner, the official synopsis for Predisposed reads:

Eli Smith, a piano prodigy, is dealing with his troubled mother and enlisting help from a hapless drug dealer on the day he has an audition for a prestigious music program. Events spiral comically out of control as this gang of misfits faces the mistakes of the past, the challenges of the future, and the possibilities of love.

The film is based on a short film of the same name, which screened at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. It also starred Melissa Leo, by the way. I looked for the short film online, but couldn't find it.

IFc didn't specify a release date.

No trailer yet for the feature; but I did find the 3 still images you see within this post.
