According to TMZ, Davis is fresh off working with Morgan Freeman — telling TMZ Sports “Every time I think about it, I be like, ‘wow.’ I wake up some mornings, I’m like ‘How did I get in a film with Morgan Freeman?’”

The film also stars Cole Hauser, Peter Stormare, and others, according to the report. “Muti” comes out on November 11.
Director George Gallo must have been pretty impressed by what Vernon brought to the set because he offered him another role in another project.
“It’s pretty cool because George Gallo was the director,” Vernon said. “It’s pretty cool to be on set with him. After the movie was over, he actually offered me another role with John Travolta and Martin Lawrence.”
“I said yeah as if somebody was proposing to me. ‘Yes! Yes! Yes, I will!’”
Plot details about the Travolta project have not yet been revealed.
Elsewhere in his conversation with TMZ Sports, Vernon gushed about being enshrinement into the Terrapins Hall of Fame.
“It’s amazing to be recognized for the things that you’ve been able to do, to accomplish and I wanna thank the University of Maryland for allowing me the opportunity to be able to go into the Hall of Fame.”
“It’s just great to be able to be recognized and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. Very grateful. My family’s excited, my friends, my coaches, and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without my teammates, my grandparents, and everyone who supported me along the way.”
