'Twelve': Joel Schumacher's Gossip Girl on Drugs (trailer)

The latest from Schumacher fell pretty flat when it premiered this year at Sundance, but this sleek trailer still makes the drug-filled life of Upper East Side socialites worth watching.

Based on the novel by Nick McDonnell, Twelve introduces us to White Mike (played by Chase Crawford, perhaps conveniently busted for pot possession recently), a young drug dealer living the good life among Manhattan’s youngest and richest. Yes, White Mike seems to have it pretty set, with a business relationship with a Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson no less, but this all spirals out of control in the sexiest way possible. Customers start asking for the new “it” drug called Twelve; White Mike’s cousin shows up dead. In short, it basically looks like Schumacher’s sex and drug-filled tribute to Gossip Girl. Twelve also stars Emma Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland, Rory Culkin, and Zoë Kravitz.
