John Leguizamo, Tyrese Gibson, Rosie Perez, Bobby Cannavale, RZA and Meagan Good will all star in the independent film, The Take for Ithaka Films and Hatchet Films.
Music video director Brad Furman is making his feature directorial debut on the film, which was written by Josh and Jonas Pate. The film revolves around an armored-truck driver (Leguizamo) who is shot during a heist in East Los Angeles and chronicles the lengths he goes to after rehabilitation to track down the criminal (Gibson) who shattered his life. The Hollywood Reporter notes The Take will be shot guerilla-style without sets in predominantly Latino neighborhoods.
Tyrese Gibson and Meagan Good are re-teaming on The Take; they just recently starred opposite each other in Focus Features' Waist Deep also including another rapper, The Game.
Shooting for The Take is set to begin in September; no release date has been scheduled.
