Last time RZA directed we got The Man with the Iron Fists in 2012. While many considered his script lacked originality, some believed that as a director RZA just needed to refine his abilities behind-the-camera. Well, he’ll get another chance with his new film Cut Throat City that instead was written by P.G. Cuscheri.
The story focuses on four childhood friends who return to New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward after Hurricane Katrina. After finding their home decimated and prospects for work swept away, they turn to a local gangster for employment and are hired to pull off a daring casino heist, right in the heart of the city.
Today, the first teaser trailer for the film has been released which you can check out below:
Cut Throat City stars Shameik Moore, Wesley Snipes, T.I., Terrence Howard, Demetrius Shipp Jr., Denzel Whitaker, Keean Johnson, Kat Graham, and Tyron Woodley. It has yet to receive a release date although it’s expected to be later this year.
