Terrence Howard, Mike Epps and Paula Patton will share the screen together for the first time in the new crime thriller .38. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is a sort of End of Watch-meets-Crash, and follows a rookie cop in St. Louis, who, after witnessing a brutal murder, begins to see the bonds that bind cops together. Epps will play a seasoned cop with familial ties to a local gang leader. Howard will play a detective whose daughter goes missing, and Patton will play Epps’ partner.

Fans will finally get to see Epps flex his dramatic chops with this role. He recently wrapped shooting Eli Roth’s Death Wish remake opposite Bruce Willis. Meanwhile, Howard, who starred in 2004’s Oscar winner Crash, will get a break from portraying Lucious Lyon on Fox’s Empire. Patton will also do something grittier, aside from romantic comedies and action flicks, with this one.

The film is expected to begin shooting in May in Thomasville, Ga., and will be directed by Michael Carney.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
