Pierce brings high profile talent to low-budget thriller, first film from new CLASS Productions

William Pierce is wrapping post-production on “Ran$um Games,” the first film from his new CLASS Productions, which will premiere Dec. 14 at I.C.E. Lawndale Theatre.

Pierce’s regular collaborator, executive producer Devin Wesley (“Hostile Takedown”), stars as a reformed drug dealer whose sister-in-law (Khadijah Muhammad) has him kidnapped by Wood Harris (“Remember the Titans”).

Elise Neal (“Hustle & Flow”) plays Wesley’s wife. Eric Lane (“Trapped In The Closet”) plays his best friend.

Parris Reaves of Hawkfilmz directed. Reaves collaborated with Wesley and Pierce on the 1998 film “Trust,” the debut feature for all three men.
