Casting a feature, "Ursula," which chronicles the grips of obsession, fame, and family. Synopsis: "At one point, Ursula Starlin was the most famous and richest black actress in America. But her demons got the best of her, and she slipped into obscurity and then, ultimately, death. Nowadays her three children: Asher, Eddie, and Dominic, are living out their days in her forgotten New York abode. Asher's the oldest - Mr. Responsible, buff, handsome. Then there's the sister, Eddie - a spitting image of Ursula, a diva, a smoker and a master of dark sarcasm. Dominic is the youngest, a meek boy, whose passion is art. Ursula’s lingering presence lands the siblings in the middle of suspicion when a string of murders occur in the area. Will the Starlin family be able to settle their dark history before it destroys their future? Based on the stage play written by Kwame Berry."
