The trailer of director David Ayer’s American crime thriller The Tax Collector released a few hours ago and has become the talk of the town since then. Featuring an intense and gritty Shia LeBeouf, along with Bobby Soto, Cinthya Carmona and George Lopez, the film is scheduled to release on August 7.
According to the synopsis shared by distributors RLJE Films, The Tax Collector is headlined by Bobby Soto as David and Shia LaBeouf as Creeper who are working for the crime lord Wizard, collecting his cut from the profits of local gangs’ illicit dealings. However, there is a twist when Wizard’s old opponent returns to Los Angeles from Mexico, the business is upended, and David finds himself desperate to protect what matters more to him than anything else: his family.
David Ayer is popularly known for co-writing The Fast and the Furious. He has also directed the Will Smith, Jared Leto and Margot Robbie starrer Suicide Squad and Brad Pitt’s 2014 American war film, Fury, which had also featured Shia LaBeouf.
