Featuring Sylvester Stallone’s first dramatic role since 1997, the upcoming film Reach Me also boasts a load of other stars in its cast. Centered around a group of characters whose lives are changed through a self-help book by an enigmatic recluse, the film also includes performances by Kelsey Grammer, Kyra Sedgwick, Kevin Connolly and Terry Crews.

Nelly also taps back into his acting chops, delivering the book’s premise in the new two-minute trailer.

“There’s no stopping someone that will stop at nothing. So if you want something, you have to decide how to get it,” he says. “If you’re stuck in your job or some stale relationship, if today always feels like yesterday, well then guess what? You’re what needs fixing.”

Reach Me is slated for release this October. Watch the trailer in the video above.
