Common, Xu Join “24 Hours to Live”

Rapper Common and Chinese actress Xu Qing are set to join Ethan Hawke in the cast of the Brian Smrz-directed thriller “24 Hours to Live” for Fundamental Films and Thunder Road Pictures.

Scripted by Zachary Dean and based on an original story from Ron Mita and Jim McClain, the story follows a career assassin who is given a chance at redemption after his employer brings him back to life temporarily – just after being killed on the job.

Mark Gao and Gregory Ouanhon are producing and filming begins in South Africa next month.
