Vivica A. Fox and Rachel Miner are set, and Laura Ramsey and Toby Hemingway are in final negotiations to star in York Shackleton’s “Street” for Insomnia Media Group says The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on a true story, Fox will portray a woman who helps and mentors Lexi (Ramsey), a 16-year-old girl with a troubled mother, a convict father and a caring sister (Miner).
After running away with a boyfriend who ends up abusing her, she finds shelter and love with a drug-addicted street kid (Hemingway) who teaches her how to survive in a tough Portland neighborhood.
Shackleton wrote the script, which is based on the life of co-producer Kristen Jensen. Luke Goss is executive producing.
