Mary-Louise Parker, Ving Rhames, and James Woods have joined Trevor White's upcoming prison drama, Jamesy Boy.

The drama follows a young man who goes from suburban street gangs to a maximum-security prison surrounded by hardened criminals. In prison, James fosters an unlikely friendship with a convicted murderer who ends up becoming his mentor and ultimately defines and changes the course of his life.

Trevor White is directing and writing the project with Lane Shadgett. Tim White, Maria Norman, Steven P. Saeta, Galen Walker and Scott Mednick will be producing.

Production for the project begins March 4 in Baltimore.
