Wesley Snipes playing a Game Of Death

Abel Ferrara's directing…

Despite tax troubles and a stint mostly doing straight-to-video action guff, Wesley Snipes can still count on some contacts - like Abel Ferrara.

The director has cast Snipes in his new thriller Game Of Death, which sees the pair working together for the first time since 1990's King Of New York.

In the film, Snipes will play a politician's bodyguard, who must stop five of the world's best assassins from taking out his boss.

Zoe Bell and Robert Davi are also in the cast and Ferrara started shooting this week in Detroit…
