Migos’ Quavo to Star in New Action Thriller Film Takeover
Migos’ Quavo has been cast in a new action thriller movie from Quality Films and Trioscope titled Takeover, Deadline reports. Directed by Greg Jonkajtys, Takeover features a script penned by Jeb Stuart (Die Hard, The Fugitive) and Brandon Easton (Marvel’s Agent Carter).
Quavo will star as Guy Miller, a parolee who’s trying to get his life back in order but gets roped back into Atlanta’s dangerous street racing scene. Takeover will use live-action performances and animation to capture the stunts, sideshows, and tricks that define that corner of car culture.
Takeover is the latest acting role for Quavo, who’s previously featured in series like Atlanta, Black-ish and Narcos: Mexico as well as Randall Emmett’s forthcoming film Wash Me in the River. “I’m really excited for this opportunity, especially shooting in my hometown of Atlanta,” the Migos artist said in a statement. “This film is an ideal opportunity to further delve into my craft, and I can’t wait to see how the action plays out in this animated environment.”
Quavo’s most recent record, his debut solo album Quavo Huncho, came out in 2018. He recently released the new song “Shooters Inside My Crib,” hopped on tracks by Bobby Shmurda and Pop Smoke, and played in the 2022 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game.
