All of our favorites, including Nia Long, Anthony Mackie and Samuel L. Jackson are teaming up in the real-life story of two real estate entrepreneurs.

According to Deadline, Black real estate entrepreneurs Joe Morris and Bernard Garrett (Jackson and Mackie, respectively) hire Matt Steiner (Hoult), described as a “working-class white man,” to appear to be the head of their business while Garrett and Morris pose as a chauffeur and janitor. While Steiner gives the appearance of a rich white businessman, Garrett and Morris are the ones who are nouveau riche, becoming two of the biggest real estate owners in America. But their success brings about an unforeseen risk of exposure that threatens everything.” 

Survivor’s Remorse and co-star of the upcoming Son of Shaft film, Jessie T. Usher has also joined the cast.
