Michael Jai White to Star in New Action Franchise – “Favela”

Legend of action Michael Jai White has signed on to star in a new action franchise entitled Favela, which will be directed by Isaac Florentine (Undisputed 2 & 3).

The Synopsis is below:

FAVELA – The franchise will revolve around former marine John “Falcon” Chapman, a dark anti-hero driven by guilt, who will destroy himself unless given something else to destroy – a useful weapon-of-last-resort for the foreign ministry. The first movie, FAVELA, sees Chapman traveling to Brazil to hunt down his sister’s killers, in the process discovering an underground world of drugs, prostitution, and police corruption ruled by the Japanese mafia. Directed by Isaac Florentine and starring Michael Jai White as Chapman, the franchise will produce 1-2 movies a year following Chapman as he is sent to exotic locations to do the foreign ministry’s dirty work.

We’ll supply more details when they appear…
