Tip ‘T.I.’ Harris, Matt Dillon and Idris Elba will all star in the crime drama “Bone Deep” for Screen Gems says Variety.
“Bone Deep” concerns a group of bank robbers who pull off a daring highrise heist and are dragged into one last job by a freshly paroled cohort. John Luessenhop (“Lock Down”) directs from a script he co-wrote with Gabriel Casseus, Avery Duff and Peter Allen.
The film is the first of a three-picture deal with T.I., who also starred in “American Gangster” and “ATL”, while the second will be the drama “Boulevard”.
The hip-hop star faces a yearlong prison stretch for weapons possession that begins next spring. The movie work will be scheduled around the sentence.
