Jamie Foxx, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dominique Fishback star in ‘Project Power’, a new film heading to Netflix this August. Set on the streets of New Orleans a rise in crime is attributed to a new drug. The pill has a unique effect on each person that takes it. Some develop super strength or invisibility, for others it’s far more deadly.
Concluding that the only way to level the playing field with criminals gifted with extraordinary abilities a street cop (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) teams up with a teenage dealer (Dominique Fishback) and a former soldier with his own agenda (Jamie Foxx) to fight power with power.
The concept behind ‘Project Power’ bears more than a passing similarity to ‘MPH‘, a 2014 comic book mini-series written by Mark Millar. Indeed, Netflix acquired the writer’s comics label, Millarworld, in 2017, opening up the potential for television adaptations. As it happens, ‘Project Power’ is written by Mattson Tomlin who has also co-written ‘The Batman’ alongside Matt Reeves
American rapper, singer, songwriter, Machine Gun Kelly also features in the film which will debut on Netflix on August 14th.
