While still keeping one foot successfully in the music world Common (Selma) has been building a healthy career in movies, both in front of the camera and behind it, to Academy Award® winning effect. Now news arrives via Deadline that after appearing in John Wick: Chapter Two, he is gearing up to star in a new revenge thriller, known as Quick Draw.
While it sounds like a Western, it will actually be set in present day Los Angles, but the team behind it, including writer and director Harris Goldberg (Without A Paddle) and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers), are keeping quiet about the exact plot details for now. All that has been announced so far is that it will feature intense shoot-outs, choreographed car chases and hand-to-hand combat.
The cameras should be cranking in the summer, and Common has several other movies on the way, including Hunter Killer, The Tale and RZA's (The Man With The Iron Fists) Coco.
