Loretta Devine and Salli Richardson will join Esai Morales to star in an indie drama titled Teachers, which will be directed by Gary Wheeler, from a script penned by Rhonda Baraka, who also wrote the screenplay for Pastor Brown, which starred Salli Richardson, as well as Trinity Goodheart, which starred Eric Benét.

Teachers centers on a divided community that comes together to save a high school that was once-popular.

No word on what exactly divides this community.

Devine will play a guidance counselor, Richardson, the principal, and Morales a parent.

The film is being produced by Eric Tomosunas and Scott Aronson of Swirl Films.

Loretta Devine will next be seen on USA Network's comedy series Psych in its eight season. 

Salli Richardson will appear in Robert Townsend's upcoming sports drama Playin' for Love.

Last we visited Esai Morales, he was starring in Rashaad Ernesto Green's Gunhill Road (although he's been busy since then).
