Is Wesley Snipes about to become busier again?  Finally some news on what the guy is actually up to, post-Expendables 3.  “The Player” is a new venture for him.

“The Player,” a Las Vegas-set action thriller, starring Snipes, hails from the team behind NBC hit “The Blacklist.” The series follows a former military operative-turned-security expert (Philip Winchester) who is drawn into a high-stakes game where an organization of wealthy individuals gamble on his ability to stop some of the biggest crimes imaginable from playing out.

Apparently the series will have a revenge slant going on, with Snipes motivated by the death of his wife.  Writer John Rogers, John Davis, John Fox and director Bharat Nalluri are all executive producers.
