Edi Gathegi is joining Martin Sheen in the indie drama The Princess of the Row.
The movie follows a 12-year-old girl in foster care who will stop at nothing to live with her homeless, mentally ill father (Gathegi), a veteran who now lives on the streets of Los Angeles' Skid Row.
Max Carlson will direct the film from a screenplay he co-wrote with Shawn Austin. Gathegi will produce, along with Carlson and Austin.
The Blacklist actor's other upcoming film credits include the Jeremy Irons-starrer Monumental and the drama Pimp, in which he stars opposite Keke Palmer. He can currently be seen on NBC's Blacklist spinoff Redemption and the second season of Crackle series Start Up.
Gathegi is repped by ICM and Framework.
