The Land trailer: Skateboard dreams derail in Nas-produced crime drama

Directed by first-time filmmaker Stephen Caple Jr. — and executive-produced by the rapper Nas — The Land is a drama about four teenage boys who devote their summer to escaping the streets of Cleveland, Ohio, to pursue a dream life of professional skateboarding, but instead find themselves ensnared in the web of a drug queen-pin. The movie stars Erykah Badu, Michael Kenneth Williams, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Moises Arias, Rafi Gavron, Ezri Walker, Linda Emond, Natalie Martinez, Colson Baker, and the very busy Kim Coates.

“I’m so proud of that,” says the Sons of Anarchy actor. “This young actor called Jorge Lendeborg is the lead. It’s about four boys in high school. Cleveland. They’re on the wrong side of the tracks. Do they go the right side? I play his uncle, and Erykah Badu is sort of my girlfriend. It was so well-received at Sundance. So, look for that!”

The Land opens in theaters and on VOD, July 29. You can see the film’s new trailer, above.
