Here below the first official pictures of Sleight, the upcoming drama thriller movie directed by J.D. Dillard based on a script he co-wrote with Alex Theurer:
“When Bo (Jacob Latimore), a handsome and gifted high school student, suddenly becomes the sole caretaker for his little sister, Tina (Storm Reid), he foregoes college to dedicate his talents to the craft of magic. He wows audiences as a street magician but still has to make ends meet, so he cleverly uses his skills to peddle drugs for the local dealer, Angelo (Dulé Hill). However when Bo falls for Holly (Seychelle Gabriel), an adorable teenager in need of support, he decides to get out of the drug business, causing Angelo to threaten his family. Bo must now rely on his sleight of hand and brilliant mind to save the day.”
The cast includes Jacob Latimore, Dulé Hill, Seychelle Gabriel, Storm Reid, Sasheer Zamata, and Cameron Esposito.
