Focus Features annouced Monday that it will handle domestic distribution for Kasi Lemmons "Talk To Me," set to begin filming next month. Starring Don Cheadle and Chiwetel Ejiofor, the film is from Sidney Kimmel Entertainment and the Mark Gordon Company. It was written by Michael Genet, with revisions by Rick Famuyiwa and Lemmons (according to Focus). Kimmel International will handle foreign rights to the film at Cannes next week. In an announcement Monday, the film was described as, "the powerful real-life story of Ralph Waldo 'Petey' Green (to be portrayed by Mr. Cheadle), an outspoken ex-con who talked his way into becoming an iconic radio personality in the 1960s, in Washington, D.C."
