Kiefer Sutherland in Movie Adaptation of ‘Twelve’

Kiefer Sutherland is set to star in a new Joel Schumacher film, based on the Nick McDonell novel, Twelve.

Variety reports Chace Crawford, Emma Roberts, Rory Culkin, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Ellen Barkin and Kiefer have joined the cast with production set to begin on April 20 in New York.

Jordan Melamed penned the script which is said to follow a high school dropout-turned-drug dealer. His lucrative life sours when the dealer’s cousin is brutally murdered on an East Harlem playground and his best friend is arrested for the crime. McDonell wrote his novel when he was only 17, which depicted teenage drug use and decadence on the Upper East Side.
