LOS ANGELES, CA Thursday Jun.28.2007 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- EURweb.com reports that Keyshia Cole and Fabolous are set to star in a new feature film with fan-toting fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld producing.

Robert Yasim Wright is directing "Only the Hood Dies Young," which he calls "a cautionary tale and depicts a generation that's lost." Wright also said that it was a "blessing" to work with Lagerfeld.

Wright said, "He loved the story. He said the drug problem is global, and that it's not limited. In writing the story, I created a situation that explains the behavior as opposed to just the behavior itself. I wanted to explain the behavior of disadvantaged youth."

Shooting is set to begin mid-October in South Jamaica, Queens.
