In Citizen, Butler plays a successful assistant D.A., who finds himself at the center of a plot for revenge hatched by Foxx after he's been screwed by the legal system. When Foxx discovers that one of the men responsible for the death of his wife and daughter is about to go free, he targets everyone who had either something to do with the murder, or the impending legal deal.
Citizen is the first film to come out of Butler's Evil Twins shingle, and it's had some high-powered help along the way -- including a rewrite by Frank Darabont, who was also set to direct at one time, but there were some personnel changes and now Gray, a former music video director, is at the helm. Not to mention the script is still scheduled for a polish by Sheldon Turner (The Longest Yard) before the film starts production on January 21st.
Law Abiding Citizen will arrive in theaters later this year.
