Wu Tang Clan's RZA directed Cut Throat City, a story of 4 childhood friends in New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward.
From the storyline on their IMDb page, “From director RZA comes the explosive CUT THROAT CITY, the story of four boyhood friends in New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward who return after Hurricane Katrina to find their homes decimated, with no jobs, and no help from FEMA. Out of options, they reluctantly turn to a local gangster, who offers them one shot at turning their situations around - by pulling off a dangerous heist in the heart of the city. When the job goes bad, the friends find themselves on the run, hunted by two relentless detectives and a neighborhood warlord who thinks they stole the heist money.”Written by Well Go USA Entertainment.
The cast consists of Shameik Moore, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Demetrius Shipp Jr., Kat Graham, Keean Johnson, Denzel Whitaker, Sam Daly, Isaiah Washington, Wesley Snipes, Terrence Howard, Eiza Gonzalez, Ethan Hawke.
The movie was originally set to hit theaters on April 10, but the distributor announced today that they will push the release to a to-be-determined date later this spring.
