'Snitch' trailer: Dwayne Johnson will run you down in a semi if you mess with his son -- VIDEO

At first, Snitch sounds like a down-and-dirty B-grade vigilante movie with Dwayne Johnson as its rough-and-tumble center. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that!) But then Susan Sarandon shows up as a hard-charging prosecutor keen on leveraging Johnson’s son — set-up for a drug deal gone bad — to hook the bigger fish in the drug smuggling business, forcing Johnson to take on the task of infiltrating the cartel himself. With The Walking Dead‘s Jon Bernthal, Boardwalk Empire‘s Michael K. Williams, Benjamin Bratt as the big bad head of the cartel, and Barry Pepper looking all Sons of Anarchy as a DEA agent, suddenly, this is looking like a down-and-dirty A-grade vigilante movie. And that’s before Johnson starts wreaking havoc with a semi.

Ol' Dirty Bastard movie to star 'Boardwalk Empire' actor Michael K. Williams -- EXCLUSIVE

As the deadly stick-up man Omar Little on The Wire and the fearsome bootlegger Chalky White on Boardwalk Empire, actor Michael K. Williams has played his share of tough SOBs. Now he’s going to take on a bastard.

An Ol’ Dirty one.

EW has learned exclusively that Williams, 45, will star in an upcoming film about the legendary Wu-Tang Clan rapper and all-around troubled soul Russell Jones, a.k.a. Ol’ Dirty Bastard, whose impressive mic skills and outrageous showmanship were eclipsed by his erratic offstage behavior, assorted arrests, and an early death.

Joaquín Baca-Asay, the cinematographer on We Own the Night, Roger Dodger and Jay-Z’s video for 99 Problems, is also joining the project, making his feature directorial debut.

The movie is based on the final years of ODB’s life – that is nonetheless stranger than fiction.
