‘Talk’ locks thesps

Don Cheadle and Chiwetel Ejiofor are set to star in “Talk to Me,” a biopic about an ex-con turned DJ who became a prominent voice for the D.C. black community during the 1960s. Cheadle will play Ralph Waldo “Petey” Green, who with his producer, Dewey Hughes (Ejiofor), fought to stay on the air at a white-owned station during the civil rights movement. Kasi Lemmons (“Eve’s Bayou”) will direct from a script penned by Michael Genet with revisions from Rick Famuyiwa and Lemmons.
