Sony patrol lands 'Linewatch'

27 August 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- Sony Pictures Entertainment has acquired all worldwide rights to Kevin Bray's gang action thriller Linewatch starring Cuba Gooding Jr., Omari Hardwick and Evan Ross.

Gooding plays Michael Dixon, a one-time Los Angeles gang member who escapes his neighborhood to become a respected U.S. border patrol officer in New Mexico. But his peaceful life with his wife and daughter is threatened when a chance encounter leads the gang's psychotic leader, Drake (Hardwick), to his door, forcing Dixon to take extreme measures to protect his family.

Ross plays Dixon's nephew Little Boy, who sought out Drake as a surrogate father when Dixon disappeared and finds himself in the middle of their conflict. Sharon Leal plays Dixon's wife.

Sony is eyeing a 2008 theatrical release for the Motion Picture Corporation of America production, shot on location this summer in New Mexico. The film is directed by Bray (Walking Tall, All About the Benjamins), written by David W. Warfield (Ocean Park, Kill Me Again) and produced by Brad Krevoy and Reuben Liber of MPCA and Karri O'Reilly. »

16 July 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- Evan Ross will star opposite Cuba Gooding Jr. in Kevin Bray's Mexican border-patrol drama Linewatch.

Ross, recently cast in Tony Kaye's drama Black Water Transit, will play Little Boy, the nephew of border-patrol agent and one-time Los Angeles gang member Michael Dixon (Gooding).

When a chance encounter leads the gang to Dixon, the agent is forced to take extreme measures to protect his family.

The Motion Picture Corporation of America production, shooting on location in New Mexico, is produced by Brad Krevoy and Karri O'Reilly.

Ross, the son of Diana Ross, recently appeared in Lionsgate's Pride, HBO Films' Life Support, Warner Bros. Pictures' ATL and the upcoming Life Is Hot in Cracktown. Gooding's credits include Sony Pictures' Jerry Maguire, for which he won the best supporting actor Oscar; DreamWorks/Paramount Pictures' Norbit; the upcoming Sony Pictures' Daddy Day Camp; Universal Pictures' American Gangster; and Harold for City Lights Pictures and M.E.G.A Films. »
