THE MOVIE: David Ayer – the award-winning writer of The Fast and the Furious, Training Day, Dark Blue, S.W.A.T., and writer/director of Street Kings and Harsh Times – is back with End of Watch. This time, Ayer is teaming up with Source Code’s Jake Gyllenhaal and World Trade Center’s Michael Pena to bring you another tale of cops, gangsters, drugs, money and firearms. Lots of ‘em.
Judging from the trailer, End of Watch may be Ayer’s most action-oriented yet. Gyllenhaal and Peña play young Los Angeles police officers who try to make a name for themselves as they patrol the city’s meanest streets of south central Los Angeles. Somewhere along the line, they bark up the wrong tree and end up being on a hit list of some very notorious killers.
End of Watch also stars Up In The Air’s Anna Kendrick, Twelve’s Cody Horn and Ugly Betty’s America Ferrera.
Updates: Check out End of Watch’s trailer and you’ll see that it promises more bang for your buck. Literally.
