Tamara Tunie (“Flight”), Daphne Rubin-Vega and dancers Katherine Crockett and Desmond Richardson will topline the indie drama “Fall to Rise.”

Tiffany Bartok and Patrick R. Morris are producing “Fall to Rise,” which will begin shooting this week in New York City at the Baryshnikov Arts Center. Gill Holland is exec producing.

The movie will be the feature directorial debut of Jayce Bartok of Vinyl Foote Prods., who is helming  from his own script. Bartok wrote the 2007 indie drama “The Cake Eaters,” starring Kristen Stewart.

Crockett, a principal dancer with Martha Graham, portrays a legendary dancer driven to dance again after the birth of her baby despite the protest of her best friend, portrayed by Rubin-Vega.

Crockett was featured as a dancer in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and Richardson was in the film version of “Chicago.”
