BHR Hollywood Reports........DMX has been casted in a new indie film starring Keke Palmer, reports Deadline.

The troubled Bronx rapper has committed to joining the cast of Pimp, which is centered around the love story of a lesbian pimp, played by Palmer, and her girlfriend. In the film, the couple dreams of making it out the 'hood and getting out of the sex industry.

The project, which is currently being filmed in New York City, takes a look at the life and hustle for women in the illegal sex trade, and the dangers they face along the way.

 At the center of this film is a love story between a pimp (Keke Palmer) and her girlfriend (Haley Ramm,) who dream of a better life and hope to get out of the one they’re in. Filming is underway in New York.

Also in the film are Aunjanue Ellis (The Help, Birth Of A Nation), Vanessa Morgan (Finding Carter) and Edi Gathegi (Twilight).

Alexis Varouxakis of 1821 Pictures and Adrenaline Entertainment is producing, along with Victoria Bousis, with Charlie Dibe co-producing.

Corey Large, Nick Garyfalmmos, Bader Alghanim, Gina Saracino and Gary Ousdahl are executive producing.

“This movie is quite unique,” said Varouxakis. “The writer-director is a woman. All the lead characters are women and at it’s core it is a love story, but it takes place in a harsh world where women have to hustle to survive.

 We have never seen a woman pimp before with a girlfriend.”

He said that they are shooting in the heart of the Bronx, and Crokos also is working closely with a man of the cloth in the community who is trying to get kids out of the circle of gun violence that plagues the area.

DMX--real name Earl Simmons--has quite the number of films under his belt, including his critically acclaimed roles in Belly (1998) and Romeo Must Die (2000), which also starred Aaliyah. It's not yet clear what role he will play in the upcoming, Pimp.
