Meek is exploring the movie scene as he stars in a new film titled Charm City Kings. The Dream Chasers MC has shared a trailer for his upcoming film which stars Meek alongside teen actor Jahi Di’Allo Winston.
The movies anchors on the storyline of a 14-year-old boy, Mouse, who aspires to join the Midnight Clique dirt bike riders. Meek portrays the group’s leader Blax, who takes Mouse under his wing.
The movie is based on an infamous crew of dirt bike riders profiled in a 2013 documentary known as the Baltimore’s 12 O’clock Boys. Meek’s casting is quite appropriate given his own history with dirt bikes, which includes a reckless driving arrest that sparked his prison sentence for a probation violation.
Charm City Kings is executive produced by Will and Jada Pinkett Smith and directed by Angel Manuel Soto. The Sony Pictures Classics film is programmed to debut at the Sundance Film Festival on January 27. It will receive a limited release on April 10 before its wide release on April 17.
