The plot focuses on an estranged couple with a bounty on their heads who must go on the run with their son to avoid their former employer, a shadow ops unit sent to kill them.

Carnahan co-wrote the screenplay with Leon Chills. Stephen “Dr.” Love is producing Shadow Force through Made with Love Media. Washington and Pilar Savone produce through Washington’s Simpson Street label and Sterling K. Brown through his Indian Meadows Productions. Kathy Atkinson, Danielle Reardon, and Jennifer Wiley-Stockton executive produce.

Sy recently wrapped on Jurassic World: Dominion, in which he plays Velociraptor trainer Barry Sembène. As for Washington, she recently completed work on Netflix’s The School of Good and Evil from director Paul Feig. The plot revolves around a group of boys and girls who are taken to an institution where they are trained to become fairytale-like heroes and villains. The School of Good and Evil also stars Michelle Yeoh, Charlize Theron, Laurence Fishburne, and Sir Ben Kingsley.
