The folks over at the Weinstein Company were good enough to forward us a link to Lucky Number Slevin, the new thriller from director Paul McGuigan (who also helmed Wicker Park).
I caught this trailer in theater a few weeks ago, and all I remember is the entire audience really getting into it, and started rooting for the main character…Good sign. And then burst out into laughter after seeing the title at the end. The irony is, Slevin ain’t so lucky at all!
LUCKY NUMBER SLEVIN is a thriller that twists and turns its way through an underworld of crime and revenge. Set in New York City, a case of mistaken identity lands Slevin (Josh Hartnett) into the middle of a war being plotted by two of the city’s most rival crime bosses: The Rabbi (Ben Kingsley) and The Boss (Morgan Freeman). Slevin is under constant surveillance by relentless Detective Brikowski (Stanley Tucci) as well as the infamous assassin Goodkat (Bruce Willis) and finds himself having to hatch his own ingenious plot to get them…before they get him. Also starringLucy Liu, LUCKY NUMBER SLEVIN is directed by Paul McGuigan and written by Jason Smilovic.
