Set It Off remake by actor-writer Issa Rae on the cards
The original film, directed by F Gary Gray, starred Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Vivica Fox, and Kimberly Elise
Actor-writer Issa Rae, known for creating, starring and writing the hit series, Insecure, is currently working on a re-imagining of the 1996 crime thriller, Set It Off.
The original film, directed by F Gary Gray, starred Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Vivica Fox, and Kimberly Elise, and revolved around the four friends who pull off a series of successful robberies in Los Angeles. Interestingly, this film propelled all the four leads and the director to the big league.
Syreeta Singleton and Nina Gloster are writing the script for the upcoming film, which will be produced by Rae and Montrel McKay.
Apart from this project, Rae is awaiting the release of two romantic comedies — The Photograph and The Lovebirds — that are set for release on February 14 and April 3, respectively.
