The first official photo from crime comedy Stand Up Guys has been released online, featuring Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin as a trio of elderly wiseguys.
The three Academy Award winners will play three retired gangsters and long-standing friends who reunite for a wild night of boozing, gambling and womanising.
However, things inevitably get complicated, with one of the trio charged with performing a hit on one of the others. That will happen when mobsters get together for a good time. People tend to get shot.
The first image has a distinct whiff of Tarantino about it, bearing several similarities to the director’s patented out-of-the-trunk camera angle. Whatever the guys are looking at here, we’re guessing it’s nothing good.
The film has been scripted by playwright Noah Haidle with Oscar-winning producer Fisher Stevens taking his first run at directing. Co-starring Julianna Margulies and Katheryn Winnick, the film is expected to arrive in UK cinemas at some point in 2013.
