Wesley Snipes will reunite with director Abel Ferrara in Game of Death
. The two last worked together with the cult film and rappers favourite King of New York
which was released in 1990 and also starred Christopher Walken, Laurence Fishburne and Steve Buscemi. In Game of Death
Snipes stars as a politician's bodyguard who must fend off five of the world's top assassins. Zoe Bell and Robert Davi co-star and the film was written by James Agnew. Producers are Billy Dietrich and Rafael Primorac. Exec producers are Voltage Pictures' Nicolas Chartier and Nadine de Barros plus Roger Grad. Bridge financiers Alastair Burlingham and Steve Robbins of Perpetual Media Capital also exec produce.
Snipes will be hoping that this role can revitalise his career after all his recent run ins with the law. To be honest, I thought the guy was still in prison. If there was any justice in the world they would have locked him up and thrown away the key for Blade:Trinity
. A more heinous crime is yet to be commited!
