Amongst 4 new titles the Sundance Film Festival announced earlier today as part of its 2012 lineup is an indie dramedy titled Predisposed, which Tracy Morgan stars in, along with Melissa Leo, Jesse Eisenberg, 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, who will also direct, 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. No trailer yet for the feature; but I did find the 3 still images you see within this post.

    So basically: The white kid has a very bright future and of course the Black guys are drug dealers. Black kids wanna play piano too.
