THE MOVIE: Well, hell. Hollywood has a new cops-and-crooks picture coming out and you couldn’t ask for a better cast than this: Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, and Sean Penn headline a roster that also includes Emma Stone, Robert Patrick, Michael Pena, and Giovanni Ribisi. You’d basically have to pay me not to see this movie.
The film is called Gangster Squad and it tells the true-to-life-story of how the Los Angeles Police Department formed a ruthless gang of cops to take down mobster Micky Cohen in the late 40′s. The trailer is now online courtesy of Apple Quicktime. Here’s hoping we have a new modern classic a la L.A. Confidential on our hands. Expect Gangster Squad to roll in to theaters on January 11, 2013.
Due to similarities to the recent real world tragedy in Colorado, Warner Brothers may call for a quick reshoot of Gangster Squad‘s climactic gun battle, which will push the release of date of Gangster Squad to January 11, 2013. Enjoy the newest trailer and check out the new Gangster Squad poster.
