While films like Aquaman and Shazam! were attracting all the headlines at this past weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con, Hip-Hop and Wu-Tang Legend RZA let loose his trailer for his new film Cut Throat City.
The film centers in on a heist that occurs after Hurricane Katrina. Four friends return to New Orleans with no resources or ways to make a living for themselves. The situation leads the stars to “reluctantly turning to a local gangster for work, the friends are hired to pull of a daring heist in the heart of the city.”
Cut Throat City will be the third film from RZA and will star T.I., Terrence Howard, DEmetrius Shipp Jr., Eiza Gonzalez, Isaiah Washington, Kat Graham and Wesley Snipes.
“I’m trying to tell the story of America through my music and films,” RZA told said at Comic-Con. “You have talent, ambition and aspiration but those things get washed away. When they get washed away you turn to desperation.”
Cut Throat City will hit the silver screen in 2019.
