Comedians Earthquake ("Clerks II") and Michael Colyar ("Norbit") also will appear in the film.

Limp Bizkit frontman-turned-director Fred Durst is directing from a script by Doug Atchison ("Akeelah and the Bee"), based on a screenplay by Nick Santora

Palmer is also slated to play rapper Roxanne Shante in the upcoming film on the rap group The Juice Crew, 'The Vapors'.
