Kat Graham has joined Shameik Moore (Netflix’s The Get Down), Empire star Terrence Howard, Wesley Snipes (Blade), Eiza González (Baby Driver), and All Eyez on Me co-star Demetrius Shipp Jr. for the post-Katrina heist drama, Cut Throat City, with Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA at the helm. The pic, currently filming in New Orleans, is produced by Elliott Michael Smith of Rumble Riot Pictures, Michael Mendelsohn of Patriot Pictures, William Clevinger, Kyle Tekiela, Sean Lydiard, Film Wealth, and RZA.
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.
