Gavin O’Connor, an unproven TV director, sets out to create the next “Serpico” with Ed Norton and Colin Farrell. Sounds like fluff to us Gavin. We’re watching the film this weekend and we’ll weigh in on your remarks. Cool thing is he casted some of the better Hispanic actors to play the thugs in this film which include Manny Perez, John Ortiz, Ramon Rodriguez and Rick Gonzalez. We hope it’s at least better than “We Own The Night” with Phoenix and Wahlberg.
This movie revolves around a saga centered on a multi-generational family of New York City Police officers. The family’s moral codes are tested when Ray Tierney (Edward Norton), investigates a case that reveals an incendiary police corruption scandal involving his own brother-in-law (Colin Farrell). For Ray, the truth is revelatory, a Pandora’s Box that threatens to upend not only the Tierney legacy but the entire NYPD.
Pride and Glory is released on October 24th.
