Gabrielle Union to Produce ‘Breaking In’ Drama
Gabrielle Union is set to return to the big screen early next year. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Being Mary Jane actress will star in and executive-produce the upcoming home invasion thriller Breaking In. The Will Packer production will reportedly begin shooting this fall, and follows the travails of a single mother who turns the tables on her attackers after they break into her home.
Breaking In will be Gabrielle’s third foray into producing. Her previous credits include 2016’s Almost Christmas and the 2015 Lifetime movie With this Ring.
In a recent interview with Forbes, Gabrielle spoke about her decision to move behind the camera, saying: “There is something to be said for having talent as producers. From deciding who is hired in the hair and make-up department, to choosing who’s hired for the camera and lighting department… there’s really something to be said about the power of creating a better experience for the actors.”
Breaking In will reportedly hit theaters next year. It is being directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta), via a script penned by Ryan Engle (Non-Stop, On a Clear Day) and former Jersey Belle star Jamie Primak Sullivan.
