Aaron Courseault has signed on to direct the indie film, Cut Throat City for Animus Films.

Courseault will make his feature film directorial debut on the film set in New Orleans; Paul Cuschieri is writing. Big Easy native rappers Lil Wayne and Baby are attached to star in the flick described as the first post-Hurricane Katrina film with social relevance, says The Hollywood Reporter. The film is a heist story that begins in the grimy, decimated Lower Ninth Ward and then hits the road.

There's no production schedule or release date set for Cut Throat City.
