Cut Throat City — Official Trailer


added: Sat, Jul 21st '18

Rapper-turned-film director RZA just had a panel at San Diego Comic Con this weekend, and he debuted the first official trailer for his latest crime film "Cut Throat City."

Set in post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans, the film focuses on four childhood friends in the Lower 9th Ward who have found their homes completely obliterated by the killer storm. With nothing else to lose and desperate for money, they are recruited by a local gangster to rob one of the casinos in the city. But pulling off a heist this big might mean they're looking at a future with more misery than victory.

Shameik Moore (Dope), Demetrius Shipp Jr. (All Eyez on Me), Denzel Whitaker (Black Panther), and Keean Johnson (TV's Nashville) are playing the four would-be robbers.

Meanwhile, the supporting cast includes the likes of Wesley Snipes (Blade), Terrence Howard (TV's Empire), T.I. (Ant-Man), Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver), Isaiah Washington (TV's The 100), and Kat Graham (TV's The Vampire Diaries).

Written by Paul Cuschieri, "Cut Throat City" isn't expected to be released until 2019.

CUT THROAT CITY is the story of four boyhood friends in New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward who return after Hurricane Katrina to find their homes decimated, no jobs, and no help from FEMA. Reluctantly turning to a local gangster for work, the friends are hired to pull off a daring heist in the heart of the city. But the job goes bad and they find themselves on the run, hunted by two idealistic detectives and a neighborhood warlord who thinks the friends stole the heist money. With their only way out to buy their way back, the friends decide to get what they need by turning the tables on the casinos that have taken from their city for years ... by doing a little taking of their own.
