One of the most must-see actors in this day and age is Yahya Abdul Mateen II. Thanks to memorable roles in films like Aquaman, the actor’s career trajectory is continuously moving upwards. Up next, as first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Abdul-Mateen II will star in a new film in the works at Warner Bros. titled Emergency Contact.
WB will handle the distribution of the project with production getting underway later this year. Additionally, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is on board to executive produce the feature via his Seven Bucks Productions banner. Johnson’s longtime collaborators Hiram Garcia and Dany Garcia will produce as well alongside Beau Flynn (Rampage).
At this time, plot details for Emergency Contact are scarce. However, the initial report indicates that it will be a high-concept, high-octane action film set in the Austin, TX underground music scene. Moreover, Rory Haines (Black Adam) and Sohrab Noshirvani (The Mauritanian) will pen the film’s screenplay.
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II continues to impress whenever given the opportunity. Following scene-stealing roles as Black Manta in Aquaman and Doctor Manhattan in HBO’s Watchmen, the actor will next lead the cast for Nia DaCosta’s Candyman. Additionally, The Trial of the Chicago 7 star will appear alongside Keanu Reeves in The Matrix 4 and Anya Taylor-Joy in Furiosa.
