It looks like Tyrese Gibson’s money problems are behind him now as 2020 shapes up to be a huge year for him. He’s set to reprise his role as Roman Pearce in the upcoming Fast & Furious 9. He’ll also be seen in the action-adventure film Morbius, which is set for a July 2020 release date.
In addition to the two films listed above, Gibson will produce and star in an upcoming thriller titled Inside Game. Filming is expected to begin in November of 2019.
Not only will Gibson star and produce, he also co-wrote the script with Ryan Jackson, so his hands are all over this film.
The Inside Game is a dramatic thriller set in a lurid world of blackmail and extortion. Gibson will play the lead role of Jamal Smith, a Miami police officer with a penchant for not doing things by the book who is suspended for excessive force. When he returns home to the urban streets of Atlanta, he finds himself thrown into the dark underworld of high stakes blackmail and extortion, which has ensnared his brother, a pro football star.
Sounds exciting, I suppose. It kinda sounds like they just tossed in that “pro football star” subplot, but we’ll see how it plays out.
Gibson said in a statement that he’s beyond grateful for this opportunity, “Being able to follow ‘Fast & Furious 9’ and ‘Morbius’ with this project is going to make for a great 2020!” he added.[mashshare]
