OutKast’s Andre 3000 and fellow artist Tyrese have signed on to star in Mark Wahlberg’s next film, which was formerly known as “Four Brothers” but is currently untitled. The Paramount Pictures film will be the first major studio project for Andre 3000.
Tyrese and Garrett Hedlund (“Friday Night Lights”) will play Andre 3000’s siblings along with Wahlberg, who was previously announced as one of the brothers. Principal photography is scheduled to begin Monday (Jan. 10) in Toronto.
John Singleton will direct the drama from a script by David Elliot and Paul Lovett about four brothers who seek to avenge their mother’s death.
Andre 3000’s previous forays into cinema include the upcoming MGM feature “Be Cool” and Guy Ritchie’s current project, “Revolver.” As previously reported, he also stars with Big Boi in HBO’s untitled OutKast movie, due later this year.
Tyrese can currently be seen in the 20th Century Fox remake “The Flight of the Phoenix” and will next appear in the Naval Academy drama “Annapolis” for Walt Disney Studios.
