Chad Michael Murray and Kevin Durand are set to play a pair of policemen in indie flick Fruitvale.

One Tree Hill star Chad and Lost's Kevin will join Octavia Spencer, Michael B Jordan and Ahna O'Reilly for the film, based on a true story, Variety reports.

Michael will play Oscar Grant, a young San Francisco resident who was detained and killed by BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) police on New Year's Eve in 2008.

The event was caught on camera and the subsequent trial and verdict sparked riots.

Forest Whitaker is producing the film.

Chad has just finished filming horror film The Haunting in Georgia, while Kevin is shooting Darren Aronofsky's Noah.
