The cast of the forthcoming cop drama Black and Blue is getting bigger and better with each passing day. After roping in actress Naomie Harris, whose credits include Pirates of the Caribbean, Skyfall, Spectre and Moonlight, to essay a pivotal part in the action entertainer, the makers have now signed on several popular actors, making Black and Blue an amazing ensemble we cannot wait to watch in cinemas. According to reports, Frank Grillo, Reid Scott, Beau Knapp and Tyrese Gibson have just come onboard to join Naomie Harris on the cast of the film.
Black and Blue is helmed by Deon Taylor from a script penned by popular writer Peter A. Dowling. It is set up under Sony Pictures’ Screen Gems label. The movie revolves around a rookie New Orleans cop (Harris) who happens to capture the killing of a drug dealer by some corrupt narcosis officers. When the corrupt cops fail to execute her and she runs away from the spot, they pin the murder on her. Now the rookie cop is hunted both by the narcosis officers who are desperate to destroy the incriminating footage and the drug dealers out for revenge.
Black and Blue is being bankrolled by Sean Sorensen of Royal Viking Entertainment in association with Taylor’s Hidden Empire Film Group Production. Roxanne Avent, partner with Hidden Empire Film Group, will serve as executive producer. From Sony Pictures’ Screen Gems label Eric Paquette has been appointed to oversee the project.
The makers are yet to lock date for the theatrical release of the movie. But looking at the impressive cast of Black and Blue, one thing that can be surely said is that it is going to be an interesting watch for all the cinephiles out there whenever the flick hits the marquee.
