Common, who is coming off a butt-kicking turn as one of the villains in John Wick: Chapter 2, is loading up forQuick Draw, a revenge thriller from Content Media and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

Harris Goldberg, who co-wrote comedies such as Deuce Bigelow: Male Gigolo but is now reinventing himself in the action sphere, wrote the screenplay and will direct the film.

Quick Draw’s logline is being holstered but Goldberg and producers are promising “hyper intense shoot-outs, choreographed car chases, and lightning fast hand-to-hand combat” as the action “plays out across the mean streets of Los Angeles.”

Di Bonaventura is producing the film with Content Media’s Tom Butterfield and David Greenblatt, the latter through his Greenlit Creative company.

“The narrative (Goldberg) creates is incredibly rich and while intense action defines this movie, the story is also very much character-driven,” said di Bonaventura in a statement.

In addition to producing Quick Draw, Content Media is handling worldwide sales. CAA will rep domestic distribution rights.

The plan is to shoot this summer.

Common, the recording artist who won the 2015 Academy Award for best original song for the movie Selma, has already made a name for himself as a formidable antagonist in movies such as Run All Night, Date Night and Wanted. Quick Draw, however, will be the first time he will topline a movie, marking a milestone in his rising acting career.

Common is repped by CAA, manager Derek Dudley, and attorney David Fox. Goldberg is repped by Greenblatt’s Greenlit Creative, Spitfire Entertainment and Jackoway Tyerman.
