After zooming to the top of the box office in the global hit F9, actor Tyrese Gibson has booked his next part alongside
Ray Liotta and Scott Eastwood.

The trio lead the Los Angeles riots thriller “April 29, 1992,” the forthcoming feature from the breakout director of “The Iceman,” Ariel Vromen.

Pre-production from a script by Sascha Penn is underway, aiming for an August start.

Producers hope to have the film ready for release in observation of next year’s 30th anniversary of the riots, sparked by police brutality against Rodney King.

Gibson, a South Central L.A. native, will play opposite on-screen father and son Liotta and Eastwood.

The film takes place on the first night of the riots, centering on a custodian who brings his son to work. The two quickly find themselves in the middle of a heist gone wrong.

Maurice Fadida of Kodiak Pictures is producing alongside Vromen.

Gibson is also starring in the upcoming Sony/Marvel comic book adaptation “Morbius.”

Eastwood recently appeared in Guy Ritchie’s “Wrath of Man.”

Liotta has the hotly anticipated “Sopranos” prequel “The Many Saints of Newark” coming this year as well as Elizabeth Banks’ upcoming “Cocaine Bear.”
