Wilmer Valderrama, Laurence Fishburne, Amber Valletta, Lupe Ontiveros, Jesse Garcia and rapper Kurupt are just part of the star-studded cast who joined the urban gang thriller, Days of Wrath for Celia Fox's Foxy Films.

Fox will also direct the film that revolves around a wide group of interconnected Los Angelenos who struggle to survive as a war between a Latino and black gang ravages the city. The Hollywood Reporter says Valderrama plays Daniel, a thug who sets off the gang war after stealing a rapper's car and accidentally killing the mother of his own Latino gang's kingpin (Garcia). Fishburne plays a teacher, mentor and voice of reason to the warring gang members. Ontiveros plays the kingpin's grandmother.

Rounding out the ensemble cast of the indie feature are Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Ana Claudia Talancon and rap artists David Banner, Rick Ross and Stavye 'Slim Thug' Thomas.

Morgan plays a ruthless TV producer romantically involved with his anchorwoman (Valletta) who sends his correspondent (Talancon) and her cameraman (Kurupt) into the crossfire. He seeks to exploit the turmoil for ratings even after discovering that the murdered woman is his ex-lover and the kingpin is his son. Banner, Ross and Thomas play members of the black gang.

Days of Wrath begins principal photography Wednesday in Los Angeles.
