Quinton Aaron ("The Blindside") is attached to star in a the debut feature film of writer/director Ben Caird, titled "Halfway."

Halfway

The drama tells the story of a recently released convict who faces the conflict of enduring ties with his old gang world, while struggling to adapt to a life on probation as the only black man in a conservative white Midwestern farm town. The character, Byron, is described as physically imposing, yet socially reserved. Further, he's said to be far from your typical gangster. An aptitude for mathematics, he was very much the brains behind the gang he used to be a part of, than brawn, despite his imposing size. And it is because of his math skills that his old gang leader wants to continue to utilize. He is sent to work on his white stepbrother's family farm as part of his probation, where he struggles to integrate himself in to this foreign world - a predicament that isn't helped by tensions with the head of his adopting family who sees him as just another problem to deal with, at a time when his family is suffering tough financial times.

The JP International Productions Ltd project is produced by Jonny Paterson.

No ETA yet.

Aaron can next be seen in Tommy Oliver's yet-to-be-release (although it's played a handful of film festivals) "1982." "Halfway" is just one of a handful of projects the actor is set to appear in.
