The new trailer for the Nas-produced drama The Land provides a glimpse at the gritty Cleveland-based film that follows a group of four wannabe professional skateboarders whose lives take a dangerous turn when the get caught up in drug dealing.
The feature directing debut from Steven Caple Jr. made a splash at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year where Cleveland-bred rapper Machine Gun Kelly (real name Richard Colson Baker) told Billboard about his latest acting gig. "I had met [director] Steven Caple Jr. with my daughter at a coffee shop downtown two years ago and this is back when The Land was a thought in his head. He was basically like, ‘I want to make a movie about Cleveland.' With anything that happens in Cleveland, I always get involved," he said.
