RZA directs this gripping heist tale set in post-Katrina New Orleans
“RZA tells this story with deliberation and imaginative daring. With CUT THROAT CITY, his third feature, he comes into his own as a director.” - New York Times
“An impeccable ensemble cast elevates and enhances a potentially familiar movie scenario with a razor-sharp cultural perspective and deeply lived-in sense of the history of the city and its people.” - Todd Gilchrist, What to Watch
Shameik Moore (SPIDERMAN INTO THE SPIDERVERSE), Wesley Snipes (BLADE), T.I. (ANT-MAN), Terrence Howard (HUSTLE AND FLOW), Ethan Hawke (BEFORE SUNRISE) and more fill out a powerful ensemble cast in this emotional, thought-provoking, and pulse-pounding thriller directed by Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA.
Set after Hurricane Katrina, four boyhood friends who’ve run out of options reluctantly accept an offer to pull off a dangerous heist in the heart of New Orleans. With thrilling action sequences set within the context of very real cultural traumas, CUT THROAT CITY takes a hard look at what it takes to survive in modern-day America.
