The Wannabe Trailer

"Now one told you to go rob the Blockbuster, you were on your own." Entertainment One has unveiled an official trailer for Nick Sandow's The Wannabe, starring Vincent Piazza as Thomas, a kid who set out to fix the 1992 trial of John Gotti. It's essentially a wacky little story about a kid who wants to be a part of the mob glory involving Gotti, and devises a crazy, bold plan to get himself in the center of everything. Patricia Arquette co-stars, Martin Scorsese executive produces; the cast includes Domenick Lombardozzi, Michael Imperioli, Doug E. Doug, Nick Sandow, Vincenzo Amato, and Joseph Siravo as John Gotti. This honestly doesn't look that memorable, but if you're into mob films maybe you should take a look.

Here's the official trailer for Nick Sandow's The Wannabe, found on YouTube (via The Film Stage):

The Wannabe Poster

Obsessed with mob culture, and desperate to fit in, Thomas sets out to fix the 1992 trial of John Gotti. He believes if the plan is executed, it will put him at the center of all that he idolizes. The plot is foiled, setting off events worthy of mob lore. The Wannabe intertwines real people and true events, past and present, with fantasy. The Wannabe is both written and directed by actor-turned-filmmaker Nick Sandow, who has only directed the film Ponies previously; he also appears in the film as Anthony. This was executive produced by Dean Devlin and Martin Scorsese, and it first premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. eOne will open Nick Sandow's The Wannabe in limited release + on VOD starting December 4th this fall.

As long as there are mob movies, the casts of The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire will have jobs.
