Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Dwayne Johnson and Beau Flynn will team for action-thriller “Emergency Contact,” set against the Austin, Texas underground music scene.
Abdul-Mateen is attached to star in and executive produce the original project set up at Warner Bros., which is based on a pitch from busy writing team Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani.
It’s described as a high-concept, high-octane action film set in Austin, but no further plot details are available.
Flynn is producing through his FlynnPictureCo. with producing partners Johnson, Hiram Garcia and Dany Garcia and their Seven Bucks Productions.
Haines and Noshirvani wrote the screenplay for “Black Adam,” the DC adventure movie starring Johnson that’s also produced by Seven Bucks and FlynnPictureCo. The writing team garnered a BAFTA nomination for adapted screenplay for legal drama “The Mauritanian.”
“Emergency Contact” will be executive produced by Scott Sheldon with Haines and Noshirvani. FlynnPictureCo.’s Chanel Bowling will oversee.
