Rainn Wilson (Weird: The Al Yankovic Story) and Lil Rel Howery (Get Out) have closed deals to exec produce and star in Code 3 — a buddy action-comedy from Wayfarer Studios and Circle of Confusion, which is heading into production in Los Angeles next month.

The film from director Christopher Leone (Parallels) follows a day-in-the-life of two overworked, underpaid and nearly burnt-out paramedics.

Everything that could happen on the job, from the mundane to the extreme, then happens on this final, exhilarating day.

Paul Ben-Victor (Plane) and Mercedes Varnado (The Mandalorian) are the newest additions to the cast of the action-thriller The Collective from Yale Entertainment. They join a cast that also includes Lucas Till, Ruby Rose, Tyrese Gibson, and Don Johnson, as previously announced.

With their backs against the wall, The Collective has no choice but to put their most important mission in the hands of rookie assassin, Sam Alexander (Till). What he lacks in experience he makes up for in savvy, grit, and a keen ability to improvise in the most dangerous situations. He is aided on his journey by Hugo (Gibson) and Liam (Johnson), former CIA operatives turned rogue vigilantes. They face off against Daisy (Rose), the cunning general manager of this evil, clandestine organization. Sam must prove to himself, Liam and Hugo that he’s Collective material on this life-or-death, take-no-prisoners mission.
