‘Cut Throat City’

Terrence Howard and T.I. are set to star in the post-Katrina heist drama, Cut Throat City, directed by RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan.

Here’s the scoop via Deadline:

P.G. Cuscheri wrote the script which centers on four boyhood friends who return to New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward after Hurricane Katrina, to find their home decimated and prospects for work swept away.

Turning to a local gangster for employment, the crew is hired to pull off a daring casino heist, right in the heart of the city.

The film also stars Wesley Snipes (Blade), Eiza González (Baby Driver), Demetrius Shipp Jr. (All Eyez on Me), Shameik Moore (Netflix’s The Get Down), Joel David Moore (Avatar), Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries), Rob Morgan (Mudbound), Keean Johnson (Alita: Battle Angel), Denzel Whitaker (The Great Debaters) and Isaiah Washington (The 100).

T.I. shared the photo of himself and Terrence via Instagram with the caption:

Working with one of THE MOST talented actors of our time!!! Elevating my art one story at a time. #CutThroatCity

I’m looking forward to this project.
