Wesley Snipes Turns Villain In “Payline”

Wesley Snipes Turns Villain In Payline

Wesley Snipes has been set to play the villain and executive produce the indie action thriller “Payline” at Dawn’s Light.

The heist-meets-crime thriller ensemble tale centers on a small-town casino that turns into a battleground after two groups of criminals attempt to rob it on the same night. It has been dubbed “Ocean’s 11” meets “Free Fire”.

Snipes will play the leader of a group of ex-soldiers robbing the casino, his first time out as a bad guy since 1993’s “Demolition Man”.

Rob Robol and Jay Boyd wrote the script while Richard Switzer, Allan Ungar and Jason Cherubini are producing.

The project also aims to be a 100 percent Certified Renewable Energy film production and hopes to debunk the myth that it costs more to make a sustainable movie than a ‘normal’ production.

Snipes next appears opposite Eddie Murphy in Netflix’s “Dolemite Is My Name” and also stars in RZA’s “Cut Throat City”.
