Directed by Greg Jonkajtys, Takeover features a script by Die Hard writer Jeb Stuart alongside Brandon Easton (Marvel’s Agent Carter). In the action movie Quavo will play the role of Guy Miller, a man attempting to get his life back on track while on parole. However, he soon finds himself dragged into Atlanta's street racing scene. Deadline notes that the movie will feature a hybrid of live-action footage and animation to capture the energy of the races.

"I’m really excited for this opportunity, especially shooting in my hometown of Atlanta," Quavo said in a statement. "This film is an ideal opportunity to further delve into my craft, and I can’t wait to see how the action plays out in this animated environment."
