By the Gun

"You want in this family, you gotta pay the price." After starring in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, actor Ben Barnes hasn't had the best luck with his film choices. He's the lead in the continuously delayed The Seventh Son, and he seems stuck in a rut if forgettable fantasy or sparsely seen films. Maybe there's a chance that could change with By the Gun, a gritty crime thriller set in Boston that sees Barnes entering the world of the Italian mafia. Leighton Meester doesn't seem to be offering much here though, especially with one particularly terrible line delivery on display that we hope is fixed in the final cut. Watch?

Here's the first trailer for James Mottern's By the Gun, originally from Yahoo:

By the Gun

By the Gun is directed by James Mottern (Trucker) and written by Emilio Mauro. Nick Tortano (Ben Barnes) is a smooth-talking, ambitious criminal from the streets of Boston. After years spent working for and idolizing the Italian gangsters he finally proves himself to the boss and becomes a made man. However, once inside, Nick conflicts with a moneymaker for the Mafia and begins to drive a wedge between him and the Boss. Harvey Keitel, Leighton Meester, Toby Jones, Paul Ben-Victor, Kenny Wormald, Slaine and more star star in the film which Millennium Entertainment sends to VOD and limited theaters December 5th.

Can't tale Toby Jones as a gangster seriously. Doesn't have the "MOTHERFUCKING MUTT" quality Pesci had.
