Watch This: 44 Inch Chest Official Trailer with Ray Winstone
From the writers of Sexy Beast. That's the tagline for the film, which should help it do well in the UK. 44 Inch Chest stars a brilliant cast of British actors including Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, John Hurt, Tom Wilkinson, and Joanne Whalley. It's a conman comedy about British mobster who loses his wife to another man and kidnaps the other man. I can't tell from the trailer, but apparently the whole thing starts to go wrong in the second half. What I love about this is that it's kind of a British Ocean's 11 hybrid, but about a relationship not actually stealing money. I'm looking forward to seeing it - looks fun! Check out the trailer.
Watch the UK trailer for Malcolm Venville's 44 Inch Chest:
Colin is devastated when his wife announces she's leaving him for a younger man, and ends up sprawled drunkenly amidst the wreckage of their final argument. His motley crew of old friends come rally to his aid, but their plot to kidnap the lover and push Colin into revenge is misguided and inept in execution.
44 Inch Chest is directed by first-time filmmaker Malcolm Venville. The screenplay was co-written by Louis Mellis (Sexy Beast, Renegade) and David Scinto (also of Sexy Beast). This just premiered at the London Film Festival a few months back and is being released in the US by Image Entertainment, but doesn't have a release date set yet. We'll be on the lookout for this one and will let you know when it'll be hitting theaters.
