Coverage on Wednesday from Deadline finally brought things back on track for RZA’s new crime drama, Cut Throat City. Well Go USA has a new trailer out, and plans to roll the film onto three hundred screens beginning July 17 following its cancelled release earlier this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
From director RZA and writer P.G. Cuschieri, 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, 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.
A portion of the film’s proceeds will be donated to lowernine.org, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the long-term recovery of New Orleans’ historic Lower Ninth Ward.
Cut Throat City stars Shameik Moore, Demetrius Shipp Jr., Denzel Whitaker, Keean Johnson, Ethan Hawke, Eiza Gonzalez, Kat Graham, Isaiah Washington, T.I., Terrence Howard, and Wesley Snipes.
