Survivor’s Remorse star Erica Ash, is set to star in the upcoming Lions Gate film, Uncle Drew.  

The film revolves around a series of Pepsi commercials starring NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving, and Get Out‘s LilRel Howery.  The official synopsis is below:

After draining his life savings to enter a team in the Rucker Classic street ball tournament in Harlem, Dax (LilRel Howery) is dealt a series of unfortunate setbacks, including losing his team to his longtime rival (Nick Kroll). Desperate to win the tournament and the cash prize, Dax stumbles upon the man, the myth, the legend Uncle Drew (NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving) and convinces him to return to the court one more time. The two men embark on a road trip to round up Drew’s old basketball squad (Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, and Lisa Leslie) and prove that a group of septuagenarians can still win the big one.

Ash will play Maya, the niece of Uncle Drew’s teammate Boots (Robinson).

Charles Stone III will direct the film.

Uncle Drew will be released via Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment on June 29.

We are excited to see Erica Ash in this new role!
