In Project Power, the newest sci-fi action thriller to stream on Netflix, stars Dominique Fishback and Joseph Gordon-Levitt play an unlike pair of friends who team up with an ex-soldier to stop the distribution of power, a dangerous new drug overtaking the streets of New Orleans. I got to interview Project Power stars Fishback and Gordon-Levitt about their characters’ friendship, the power of words, and superpowers.

The film is written by Mattson Tomlin and directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman.

“On the streets of New Orleans, word begins to spread about a mysterious new pill that unlocks superpowers unique to each user. The catch: You don’t know what will happen until you take it. While some develop bulletproof skin, invisibility, and super strength, others exhibit a deadlier reaction. But when the pill escalates crime within the city to dangerous levels, a local cop (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) teams with a teenage dealer (Dominique Fishback) and a former soldier fueled by a secret vendetta (Jamie Foxx) to fight power with power and risk taking the pill in order to track down and stop the group responsible for creating it.”

Project Power premieres on August 14, 2020 on Netflix.
