Deadline has reported the accomplished actors Michael Ealy and Omar Epps will star in the upcoming film, The Devil You Know. Directed by Luke Cage's Charles Murray, Epps will play the role of a man named Marcus Cowans who is looking to turn his life around. However, things become difficult when discovers that one of his brothers has been involved in a home invasion. As he works to get his brother out of trouble, he finds himself at odds with a cop played by Michael Ealy. Nearing retirement, Ealy's character becomes entrenched in one of his final cases before retirement.

Epps and Ealy are set to star in and executive produce the film. Glynn Turman, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Theo Rossi, BJ Britt, Vaughn Hebron and Curtiss Cook will also star in the film. Rounding out the team, Marc Damon, Roy Scott MacFarland, and Jackie J. Stone will help produce the film.

The Devil You Know is an exploration of family, morality, and brotherhood. It challenges generational and cultural conditioning in an authentic way that leads back to protecting one’s humanity. I’m excited for audiences to experience this film for years to come," Epps told Deadline.

“I’ve lived with this idea for many years and seeing it come to life with this stellar cast and driven crew has been nothing short of a dream come true. Loving movies as much as I do, having the opportunity to work with Glynn Turman, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Omar Epps, Michael Ealy, and the rest of the cast has been equally rewarding as a fan and as a creative. I enjoyed every minute of it," director Charles Murray added.

There is no word as to when the film will debut.
