GANGSTER SQUAD Trailer # 2
Have a look at the second trailer for GANGSTER SQUAD starring Oscar® nominees Josh Brolin (“Milk,” “True Grit”) and Ryan Gosling (“Half Nelson,” “Blue Valentine”), Emma Stone (“The Help”) and Academy Award® winner Sean Penn (“Milk,” “Mystic River”). After the Aurora, Colorado tragedy, the film was moved to January 2013 and reshoots took place over the past few months in L.A.’s Chinatown. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the scene in question “featured a key action sequence with mobsters bursting through the silver screen of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood with Tommy guns blazing. The bloody gunplay continued in the lobby and courtyard and spilled onto Hollywood Boulevard.”
Warner Bros.’ upcoming 2013 slate also includes THE GREAT GATSBY on May 10, 2013, THE HANGOVER III on May 24, 2013, MAN OF STEEL on June 14, 2013, Guillermo del Toro’s PACIFIC RIM on July 12, 2013 and the second installment in the HOBBIT franchise, THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG, on December 13, 2013.
GANGSTER SQUAD is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD’s efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time. The screenplay is by Will Beall (TV’s “Castle”), based on Paul Lieberman’s series of articles entitled “Tales From the Gangster Squad.” The film is being produced by Dan Lin (“Sherlock Holmes”), Kevin McCormick (“The Lucky One”) and Michael Tadross (“Arthur”).
GANGSTER SQUAD stars Penn as real-life mobster Mickey Cohen; Brolin and Gosling as the LAPD’s Sgt. John O’Mara and Jerry Wooters; and Stone as Grace Faraday, Cohen’s moll and the object of Wooters’ attention.
The movie also stars Robert Patrick (“Flags of Our Fathers”) as Officer Max Kennard, a deadly cop who patrols the Olvera Street beat; Michael Peña (“Battle Los Angeles”) as Kennard’s over-eager sidekick, Navidad Ramirez; Giovanni Ribisi (“Avatar”) as the force’s Conway Keeler, an electronics expert who takes as much pleasure in fixing his son’s bike as he does tinkering with experimental, military-grade equipment; and Anthony Mackie (“The Adjustment Bureau”) as Coleman Harris, a switchblade-wielding cop who proudly patrols one of the most crime-ridden areas of the city.
Joining Fleischer behind the scenes are the director’s regular collaborators, production designer Maher Ahmad and editor Alan Baumgarten (“30 Minutes or Less,” “Zombieland”), as well as Academy Award®-winning director of photography Dion Beebe (“Memoirs of a Geisha”) and Oscar®-nominated costume designer Mary Zophres (“True Grit”).
