Lucas Till, Ruby Rose, Tyrese Gibson, and Don Johnson Have Signed On To Yale Entertainment’s new action-thriller, The Collective.

He is aided on his journey by Hugo (Tyrese Gibson) and Liam (Don Johnson), former CIA operatives turned rogue vigilantes. They face off against Daisy (Ruby Rose), the cunning general manager of this evil, clandestine organization. Sam must prove to himself Liam and Hugo that he’s Collective material on this life or death take no prisoners-mission.
