On December 29,2012 at 4:14 A.M I finished Tyrese Gibson’s first book “How To Get Out Of Your Own Way”. The book truly changed my life forever. So I posted a blog about how I felt and at the end of it I said “ I can’t wait to see the film you direct in the future”. Well the future is now ! Mogul, singer, writer, and actor Tyrese Gibson will be the exec producer of “Desert Eagle” through Voltron Filmz. Tyrese and producer, director, and screenwriter Mike Le wrote the action script however the two hired Matthew Stuecken and Josh Campbell to rewrite it. Scott Stuber will produce the film alongside Jerome Martin. The film Desert Eagle is about a pair of border patrol agents whom investigate a drug cartel being operated out of a Native American reservation casino. The 17 or 18 year old teenager that walked up to film director John Singleton at a Hollywood party and told him “ I’m a movie star and I’m gonna work with you one day” is now a hardworking successful man that has starred in John Singleton’s film “Baby Boy” and eighteen other feature films. Including the Fast & Furious films in which he plays the super fly, stylish, and energetic Roman. Fast & Furious 6, grossed $788 million worldwide. Roman returns in Furious 7 which debuts in theaters April 3,2015. Tyrese will also star in Southpaw with Jake Gyllenhaal and Ride Along 2 alongside comedian Kevin Hart and Ice Cube. Tyrese Gibson said in his book “ You have to not only fall in love with yourself, you also have to fall in love with your own ideas.” I’m so glad Tyrese fell in love with his ideas. His double album “Black Rose” will be released May 5,2014. You never know where your ideas can lead you. Tyrese Gibson’s just sold his idea “Desert Eagle” to Universal Pictures. So I guess I can say now “I can’t wait to attend the premiere or get a role.”
Congratulations Tyrese its time to celebrate #TeamVoltron style!
