Following his debut effort with “The Man with the Iron Fists” and Lionsgate’s upcoming “Coco,” rapper turned filmmaker RZA has set Amasia Entertainment’s action film “Breakout” as his next directorial effort.
The story follows a young photographer falsely arrested in Bangladesh for drug trafficking whose prominent father enlists two old friends to extract his son from prison and uncover the truth.
Richard D’Ovidio penned the script from a story he co-wrote with Nicole D’Ovidio. Michael Helfant and Bradley Gallo will produce and filming begins early 2016.
RZA stars in Amasia’s “Mr. Right” which is screening at the Toronto Film Festival.
