One of the hardest working men in the business, Mr Tony Todd, co-stars in this new upcoming crime thriller curiously titled Sushi Girl.

Its story goes… After spending 6 years in jail for a diamond heist, taking the rap for the other 4 men who were also involved in the crime but weren’t convicted, Fish is released, and, on that glorious day, his 4 co-conspirators decide to celebrate his freedom with a congratulatory dinner… though they have other plans for him as well. The meal is a lavish array of sushi, served off the naked body of a beautiful young woman. And as the night progresses, the old wounds are opened, as the group of 4 tries to get the newly freed Fish to locate their missing booty.

Sounds familiar though intriguing enough, right?

From the trailer below, it looks like Tony Todd is one of the 4 accomplices. He’s getting top-billing in this, and features quite a bit in the trailer, so maybe it’s a plump role.

There’s no official release date yet. The $2 million film, directed by Kern Saxton (his debut), is listed as currently in post production, with a debut some time in 2012.
