VIDEO: Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt Take on Drug-Fueled Supervillains in ‘Project Power’ Trailer
Dominique Fishback and Machine Gun Kelly co-star in Netflix’s Aug. 14 action filmJuly 16, 2020
Stern Show veterans Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt team up to rid New Orleans of drug-fueled supervillains in the official trailer for “Project Power,” arriving on Netflix in August.
The story centers around a mysterious new pill which imbues users with a unique superpower … for just five minutes at a time. Some who take it develop invisibility or super strength while others exhibit a deadlier reaction, seemingly combusting on the spot. Foxx plays a former soldier with a secret vendetta hellbent on stopping the cartel which created and distributes the drug, and he’s not afraid to take the pill himself to fight their powers with one of his own. He teams up with a teenage dealer (Dominique Fishback) and a local cop (Gordon-Levitt) to take down the menace.
“They think they can just test their product on my city. Well, let ‘em see what happens,” Gordon-Levitt’s character says at one point (above).
Directed by Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost (“Catfish”), the film also features Machine Gun Kelly, Courtney B. Vance, and Rodrigo Santoro. The script was written by Mattson Tomlin, who co-wrote Robert Pattinson’s upcoming superhero debut “The Batman.”
Foxx sat down with Howard back in 2017, opening up about everything from his unforgettable experience meeting Prince to how Oprah Winfrey helped him win an Academy Award. Watch a clip from the conversation (below).
“Project Power” arrives Aug. 14 on Netflix.
