Steve Buscemi, Anne Heche, Cynthia Nixon, Sigourney Weaver and Robin Wright have joined Woody Harrelson, Ice Cube and Ben Foster in Oren Moverman’s crime-thriller Rampart.

Set against the backdrop of the scandal within the L.A.P.D. Rampart Division in the late 1990s, the film is the fictional account of a veteran police officer (Harrelson) caught up in the scandal, and his search for redemption. Ice Cube and Foster will also play LAPD officers.

The [Rampart] scandal grew out of severe police misconduct in the late 1990s in the Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums (CRASH) anti-gang program including unprovoked shootings, beatings, planting of evidence, framing of suspects, stealing and dealing narcotics, bank robbery, perjury and covering up evidence.

The Rampart Scandal is notable in popular culture because at least three Rampart police were found to be on the payroll of hip-hop mogul Marion “Suge” Knight of Death Row Records, a convicted felon with known ties to the Bloods gang. Moreover, detective testimony and a wrongful death lawsuit filed on April 16, 2007, holds Rampart CRASH officers Nino Durden, Rafael Pérez and David Mack responsible for the 1997 drive-by murder of multi platinum-selling hip hop recording artist Notorious B.I.G.

The Rampart Scandal was also the inspiration behind the highly acclaimed F/X television series ‘THE SHIELD’ – what THRALL WORLD easily considers the greatest television series ever. Don’t read about it lest you stumble on spoilers – just watch it from beginning to end. You’ll be trounced with the amazingness.

ROBERT RODRIGUEZ


Source: ComingSoon.net

Cool interview with ROBERT RODRIGUEZ in which they touch base on the status of SIN CITY 2:

“We still talk about doing that as early as later next year. I haven’t gotten to that yet.”

On the chances of it actually happening and if there is a script from FRANK MILLER?

“I can’t say no, because I don’t know it’s no. I know Frank wants to do it. I know I want to do it. It’s always sort of a ‘time permitting’ kind of thing. But it’s not like I can tell you definitely we’re starting . It’s not my next picture, I know that. It doesn’t mean that it’s not the picture right after ’cause that’s still a possibility. There has been a script since 2007.”
