Leonardo DiCaprio en Jamie Foxx weer samen in Mean Business

Django Unchained hoofdrolspelers Leonardo DiCaprio en Jamie Foxx zullen weer samen op het witte doek te zien zijn in Warner Bros. Pictures‘ adaptatie van S. Craig Zahler boek Mean Business on North Ganson Street. Dit meldt Deadline.

Het verhaal wordt als volgt beschreven:

“DiCaprio is a hardened detective who, after being told by a man that his beautiful wife is missing, tells him she is a hooker who obviously made off with his money. After the man commits a desperate tragic act right in the squad room, the disgraced detective is sent to a hellhole rust belt town called Victory, Missouri, where violent crime is skyrocketing. Partnered with an equally bad-assed detective who was demoted for publicly brutalizing a suspect (Foxx), the new partners get to do some real work. Police officers start showing up dead execution-style, and the cops think it might be open season on Victory’s police department.”

Het script wordt geschreven door auteur S. Craig Zahler en DiCaprio en zijn Appian Way-partner Jennifer Davisson Killoran treden op als producenten.
