Mekhi Phifer and rapper/actress Eve will star opposite Vincent Laresca in Antonio Macia's indie feature Ego. Macia will helm the film from his own screenplay, which centers on a cop who begins harassing the newly paroled ex-con who killed his father. The ex-con is repeatedly humiliated until his tragic death and the cop must live with the emotional consequences of his revenge. The story jumps ahead fifteen years into the future, where he must now deal with a whole new set of problems. His highly decorated police career is brought into question and must confront his partner who he suspects as being dirty. Laresca will star as the cop and Phifer plays the ex-con. Shooting will start in late November in Connecticut.
