Tyrese Gibson is adding film writer to his growing resume.
Universal Pictures has optioned ‘Desert Eagle,’ an action film scripted by Gibson and Mike Le, which the singer-actor will also star.
'Desert Eagle' is about a pair of border patrol agents, who investigate a drug cartel being operated out of a Native American reservation casino.
Matthew Stuecken and Josh Campbell has already been hired to tighten up the script and the ‘Fast & Furious’ star will also be an executive producer.
Gibson last starred in 2013’s Fast & Furious 6, which grossed $788 million worldwide, and the next trilogy, Fast 7, will arrive soon. He will also appear in the upcoming film, Ride Along 2, opposite Kevin Hart and Ice Cube.
As far as music, Tyrese is currently promoting the Snoop Dogg-assisted single, “Dumb Sh*t,” lifted from his upcoming final album, Black Rose, slated for arrival on May 5th. A music video was shot for “Dumb Sh*t.”
