We have some more Michael Jai White news to share with you all because here at Action-Flix, you can never have too much Michael Jai White. The action Star is set to team up with Fast and Furious franchise star Tyrese Gibson for a new thriller tentatively titled Red 48.
The news comes via The Illuminerdi and the site shared a nice lengthy synopsis of the film which you can peek at below!
Kyle Snowden, a Child Protective Services officer, who is trapped in a store along with several other desperate people who are all taken hostage by the maniac militant Eagan Raize and his three followers.
Held captive in the store with Snowden are Manny, a Mexican immigrant child that Snowden is tasked with protecting, Sam Safty, Snowden’s stepfather, a Congressman who owns the store that has been taken over, the smart steadfast store manager, Sunshine, and her wife and employee Rainey, and finally Mikki, a kleptomaniac teenager.
Within the tense confines of the store, the hostages must work to stay alive and stop the group of terrorists all while secrets unfold as Raize’s personal vendetta against Safty is revealed.
Red 48 will also star Chris Backus from Bosch and Big Little Lies and the report says that he will be playing the heavy in the pic named Eagan Raize who is a ruthless terrorist while Michael Jai White is reportedly playing a character named Sparks. Gibson is probably playing the lead of Kyle Snowden so hopefully White gets to showcase his particular set of skills like always.
The film will be helmed by Jon Keeyes from a script penned by Mickey Solis. The film is in the early stages so expect a wait for this one but hopefully this will pan out and we will see it next year some time.
White is set to be seen next in the Netflix film Welcome to Sudden Death and has many projects lined up including Take Back where he will star alongside his wife Gillian so expect a lot of good things from the action star. He is one of the true action stars working today and always brings it in any film he is in.
Gibson will, of course, been seen in the next Fast and Furious entry which was supposed to be released this last May but was delayed till next April due to the pandemic.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more to come as we are your destination for everything action!!!!
