Wesley Snipes to Star in and Produce Heist Thriller ‘Payline’

Wesley Snipes is set to star in and produce a casino heist thriller called “Payline” for Dawn’s Light Media and Maandi House Studios, Snipes announced Tuesday.

Snipes will play the villain in the film, which will be the first time Snipes has taken a villain role since 1993’s “Demolition Man,” in which he starred opposite Sylvester Stallone.

Described as a project in the vein of “Ocean’s Eleven” and Ben Wheatley’s “Free Fire,” “Payline” centers on a small-town casino that turns into a battleground after two groups of criminals attempt to rob it on the same night. Rob Robol and Jay S. Boyd wrote the screenplay.
