The Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx led Law Abiding Citizen from director F.Gary Gray (Friday) is rounding into form for it’s 2010 release. I am kind of feeling the plot from the film’s IMDB page:
An everyday guy decides to take justice into his own hands after a plea bargain sets his family’s killers free. His target: The district attorney who orchestrated the deal.
It almost sounds like it has elements of one of the 10 Movies “The ‘Hood” Loves The Most, New Jack City, in it or at least aspects of HBO’s “The Wire” mixed in. Gray released the following statement via twitter keeping us abreast of his progress:
Hey Tweeps! I’ve been really busy editing “Law Abiding Citizen”. Hitting deadlines, cutting music, sound FX etc.
This has kind of been an under the radar film, but with a cast that includes two big names as well as screenplay credits from David Ayer (Training Day) and Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption), this one should have a considerably raised profile by the time it is drops next year on March 26th, coincidentally the month where Butler had so much success in 300 a few years back. FYI, I’ve included two posters below, not sure which is current at this point.
