Wendell Pierce Joins Play Adaptation “Four”

Wendell Pierce (“The Wire,” “Treme”) has joined the cast of a $500,000-budgeted film adaptation of Christopher Shinn’s off-Broadway play “Four” reports California Chronicle.

The story juxtaposes two struggling relationships of two couples. The first is a 16-year old white boy and a closeted married black man he met on the Internet. The second is the closeted man’s 16-year-old daughter, and her 20-year-old drug-dealing boyfriend.

Joshua Sanchez directs the film from his own script. A month-long shoot kicks off around the Hartford area beginning September 13. Christine Giorgio produces.
