Kiefer Sutherland starring in Twelve

Alongside Emma Roberts in Joel Schumacher’s latest

Joel Schumacher’s looking to get gritty with his new film – he’s set Kiefer Sutherland, Rory Culkin, Emma Roberts and Ellen Barkin to star in drug tale Twelve.

Adapted from Nick McDonnell’s book – which he wrote when he was 17 in 2002 – the plot follows a high school dropout who turns to dealing drugs.

At first, it seems to be the perfect way to earn money. But then his cousin in slaughtered in a playground and his best friend is arrested for the murder.

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is also aboard the film, which has been adapted by Manic director Jordan Melamed.

Schumacher, meanwhile, is gearing up to shoot the movie in a couple of weeks in New York.
