Gabrielle Union (Being Mary Jane) is making boss moves just like her titular tv series character! Once again, she will be teaming up with producer and BMJ executive producer Will Packer on an upcoming feature entitled, Breaking In. Via a Deadline exclusive, Union will star in and produce the drama. Breaking In follows a woman who fights to protect the ones she loves during a home invasion. James McTeigue (V for Vendetta) is directing the project from a screenplay by Ryan Engle, and the film is set to start shooting in July.

Along with producers Union and Packer, James Lopez, and Practical Picture’s Craig Perry and Sheila Taylor will be producing. Jaime Primak Sullivan, who came up with the pitch, will serve as executive producer along with Valerie Bleth Sharp and Jeff Morrone.

This new project will be Union’s fourth run as a producer. Not unfamiliar to Packer projects, Union recently starred in and served as executive producer on Will Packer Productions’ holiday film Almost Christmas. She also co-starred alongside Jamie Foxx in Sleepless. Union is repped by CAA and Primary Wave.

Congratulations to Gabrielle Union! She is making moves in front of and behind the camera and we couldn’t be more proud and excited to see her shine!
