STARRING Chace Crawford, 50 Cent
DIRECTED BY Joel Schumacher
WRITTEN BY Jordan Melamed

Based on Nick McDonell’s disturbing, celebrated novel, Twelve revolves around a group of self-destructive Manhattan prep schoolers who are — in the words of director Joel Schumacher — ”overprivileged and underloved.” Chace Crawford stars as White Mike, a small-time pot peddler catering to an Upper East Side clientele and grieving over the death of his mother. When he starts moving harder drugs, he tangles with a dangerous dealer played by 50 Cent.
