Directed by F. Gary Gray, in just his second directorial effort, Set It Off starred Jada Pinkett, Queen Latifah, Vivica A. Fox and Kimberly Elise as four friends who resort to crime after growing tired of their dead-end jobs. The film was a box office success, scoring $41 million against a modest $9 million budget; and was critically praised as a rare action title featuring a black female cast.

Rae will produce the project via her Issa Rae Productions and may star in the film. Syreeta Singleton (Black Monday) and Nina Gloster (Star) will pen the screenplay.
