Amasia Entertainment principals Michael Helfant and Bradley Gallo have signed RZA to direct the upcoming action feature.
RZA stars in Amasia’s Mr Right, which will premiere in Toronto as the closing night gala selection.
Richard D’Ovidio wrote the Breakout screenplay from the story he co-wrote with Nicole D’Ovidio. Principal photography is set for early 2016.
Breakout is the story of a young photographer falsely arrested in Bangladesh for drug trafficking whose prominent father enlists two old friends to extract his son from prison and uncover the truth.
RZA recently wrapped directing and is in post on Lionsgate’s Coco.
