Evan Ross and Scott Reeves have joined the cast of Lionsgate's PDR, which stars Terrence Howard and Bernie Mac, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Directed by Sunu Gonera, the film chronicles the real-life story of Jim Ellis (Howard), who in the 1970s transformed a group of troubled black inner-city kids into one of the best swim teams in the country.

Michael Gozzard and Kevin M. Smith wrote the screenplay. Ross, who makes his film debut this month in Chris Robinson's ATL, will play one of the troubled teens. Reeves, the son of Clint Eastwood, will play the captain of a predominantly white rival swim team.
