Cuba Gooding Jr. will star in the GRIDLOCKED for Hackybox Pictures. The story begins with a team of mercenaries attacking a training facility where a former SWAT team leader (Gooding), who’s being shadowed by an arrogant movie star researching a role, must organize the survivors to fight back. Earlier in his career he would’ve most likely played the “movie star” role, but I guess times have changed.
Allan Ungar will direct from a script he cowrote with Rob Robol. Bruno Marino, Geoff Hart and Cody Hackman will produce.
Gooding was last seen in “Machete Kills” and “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” and will next appear in “Carry Me Home” and “Broken Doll.”
He is repped by ICM.
