Posted Feb. 26, 2008 -- Bow Wow, Evan Ross, and Chi McBride will star in the indie black comedy "Driving Lessons," according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Max Thieriot ("Kit Kittredge: An American Girl") will play the religious, right-wing teenage son of a woman given a second chance at her unhappy marriage to Jack (Dermot Mulroney) after losing her memory. It conveniently helps her forget an interracial affair with her burly next-door neighbor Simon, played by McBride.

Ross will play Simon's son, and actor-rapper Bow Wow and Jermaine Williams will play wannabe thugs who complicate everyone's lives. Filming begins next month in Los Angeles.
