AceShowbiz -Actor/singer Tyrese Gibson is reuniting with his “The Fate of the Furious” co-star Scott Eastwood for a new movie about the 1992 Los Angeles riots.

Ray Liotta will also star in “April 29, 1992“, the upcoming thriller from “The Iceman” director Ariel Vromen, which will focus on a custodian who takes his son to work, only to find themselves caught up in a heist gone wrong on the first night of the riots, reports Variety.

Liotta and Eastwood will play father and son, while details about Gibson’s role have not been revealed.

Production on the project, written by “Creed II” story creator Sascha Penn, is expected to get underway in August.
