Walt Disney Pictures confirmed today that production has begun on live-action drama SAFETY which will stream exclusively on Disney+.
SAFETY is the empowering story of Ray McElrathbey, a young man facing a series of challenging circumstances, whose faith and persistence help him to triumph over repeated adversities and play football on scholarship at Clemson University, all while struggling to raise and care for his 11-year-old brother Fahmarr.
The new drama is in production now in South Carolina and is being directed by Oscar® nominee Reginald Hudlin (“Django Unchained,” “Marshall”), written by Randy McKinnon (“Where the Water Runs”) and Nick Santora (“Scorpion,” “The Fugitive at Quibi”) and produced by Mark Ciardi (“Chappaquiddick,” “Invincible”).
SAFETY will film on locations in both Clemson, South Carolina and Atlanta, Georgia before wrapping production in mid-November. The film stars Jay Reeves (“All American”) as Ray; Thaddeus J. Mixson (“The Grind”) as Fahmarr; and Corinne Foxx (“47 Meters Down: Uncaged”) as Kaycee.
