Steve Caple Jr. wrote and directed the film with Lizzie Friedman. Greg Little and Karen Lauder of Priority Pictures are producing alongside Tyler Davidson of Low Spark Films as well as Blake Pickens and Stephen Love. Priority Pictures is also financing the film with Charles D. King’s MACRO, marking their first project together.

“[I’m a] huge fan of my man Steve Caple Jr. I think he can become the next great filmmaker. [I’m] also, very excited to be working with my former agent and friend Charles King on his first film with his new venture. All great energy around the film, which I believe will yield amazing results,” Nas said.

The Land” follows four teenage boys who devote their summer to escaping the streets of Cleveland to pursue professional skateboarding. When they get caught in the web of a local drug queen-pin, their motley brotherhood is put to the test.

In addition to Badu, the film stars Moises Arias, Rafi Gavron, Michael K. Williams, Kim Coates, Machine Gun Kelly, Jorge Lendeborg Jr. and Ezri Walker.

Nas is repped by WME and Anthony Saleh.

WME Global helped arrange the financing for the film and is handling the worldwide rights. Low Spark Films financed the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit.
