Dwayne Johnson Stars In New SNITCH Trailer
In this new trailer for the fast-paced action thriller SNITCH, Dwayne Johnson stars as a father whose teenage son is wrongly accused of a drug distribution crime and is looking at a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 10 years. Desperate and determined to rescue his son at all costs, he makes a deal with the U.S. attorney to work as an undercover informant and infiltrate a drug cartel on a dangerous mission – risking everything, including his family and his own life.
The ensemble cast includes Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon, Emmy nominee Benjamin Bratt, Jon Bernthal (TV’s “The Walking Dead”) and Golden Globe nominee Barry Pepper.
Always a welcomed sign to see Barry Pepper – last time was TRUE GRIT. His next gigs are BROKEN CITY with Russell Crowe and Mark Wahlberg and Gore Verbinski’s THE LONE RANGER. SNITCH looks intense and Sarandon isn’t cutting Johnson any slack. We’ve seen a lot of the Oscar-nominated actress this year. Presently she’s co-starring in CLOUD ATLAS and also stars in ARBITRAGE and the delightful ROBOT AND FRANK.
Inspired by a true story, the screenplay to SNITCH was written by Justin Haythe (the Lone Ranger, Revolutionary Road, the Clearing) and adapted by the film’s director Ric Roman Waugh.
SNITCH will be in theaters February 22, 2013.
