DMX is returning to the big screen in a blockbuster which sees him star alongside a familiar face.
The Ruff Ryders rapper will be starring in new movie ‘Beyond the Law’, alongside Steven Seagal and Johnny Messner. Steven Seagal and DMX worked with each other on Andrzej Bartkowiak’s 2001 action movie, ‘Exit Wounds’. The movie from Cinedigm Corp was written by Chad Law and Johnny Martin Walters. Directed by James Cullen Bressack, this action-packed film is about an ex-cop’s struggle and drive and for justice.
When former detective, Frank Wilson, played by Messner, finds out about the murder of his estranged son, he returns to his roots in the murky streets he used to revel in. Armed, dangerous, risking everything, he encounters numerous obstacles and battles the local mob and a rather shady character criminal enforcer, played by Segal.

The return to the big screen comes just a month after DMX checked himself into rehab to help him recover from drink and drug addiction. In October, a statement posted on the rapper’s Instagram informed fans that he was taking action. “In his ongoing commitment to putting family first and sobriety first, DMX has checked himself into a rehab facility.”
