Omar Epps & Paula Patton Team Up for New Thriller, ‘Traffik’

Veteran actors Paula Patton and Omar Epps are set to star in the upcoming thriller, Traffik, which was just acquired by Lionsgate’s Codeblack Films for distribution.

The film stars Paula and Omar as a young couple on a romantic getaway who are later terrorized by a vicious group of sex traffickers, according to Variety.

The film’s cast includes Roselyn Sanchez, Luke Goss, Missi Pyle, William Fichtner and Paula’s Jumping the Broom co-star, Laz Alonzo.

Codeblack president and CEO Jeff Clanagan shared his thoughts on acquiring the film, written and directed by Deon Taylor.

“Deon Taylor is an iconic storyteller and master of the thriller genre whose films fit right in the sweet spot of the original, exciting, and premium quality entertainment with which we are super-serving our audiences.

“Combining an all-star cast headed by Paula Patton and Omar Epps, an A-list creative team and a riveting story, Traffik is an exciting addition to our diverse upcoming slate.”

Traffik will hit theaters April 27, 2018.
