The upcoming thriller "Black and Blue" has added a couple of TV superheroes to its cast.
Mike Colter and Nafessa Williams have joined the cast, Deadline reports. Colter previously played Luke Cage in the Netflix series of the same name, and Williams currently stars as Thunder in The CW's "Black Lightning." They'll appear alongside Naomie Harris, Tyrese Gibson, and others.
Written by Peter A. Dowling, the film follows a rookie police officer (Harris) who lives in New Orleans. When she witnesses dirty cops murdering a drug dealer, they try to frame her. She has to fight to clear her name, all while being hunted by the cops as well as other drug dealers seeking revenge.
So far, details about Colter and Williams's characters haven't been revealed. They're both ready for action, though. Their respective superhero characters have seen plenty of it.
Deon Taylor is directing the film, and the cast also includes Frank Grillo, Reid Scott, and Beau Knapp. Taylor's production company, Hidden Empire Film Group, is producing with Royal Viking Entertainment's Sean Sorenson. Roxanne Avent of Hidden Empire will executive produce alongside Eric Paquette of Screen Gems.
A release date for "Black and Blue" has not yet been announced.
