Directed by Sarah Knight, the Jo Films production drama Shady Creek will star Tyson Beckford, Christopher Michael Holley, C.J. Sanders and Ryan McGlazer.

The film's storyline goes, "A prisoner -- out on weekend furlough -- becomes acquainted with the young son he has never met after returning to the town of Shady Creek where he was convicted of a terrible crime ten years earlier. When the daughter of the only witness to testify against him turns up dead, fingers immediately point to him, and only his son holds the keys to his absolution."

My assumption is that he will play the lead role of the prisoner.

Shady Creek is currently in pre-production and according to its IMDB, it will be released sometime in 2013.

More updates to follow as they come.

    Does Slim Shady live in Shady Creek? lol Soon as I read this the theme song from 8Mile popped into my head.

    I wonder what the terrible, heinous crime was... I wonder if the viewer will know from the start or if it will be revealed bit by bit during the course of the film...
