Stand-Up Guys

We first heard about the film Stand Up Guys in February, and the assembly of veteran actors and Oscar winners Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin in an action comedy sounded pretty damn enticing. The story follows two aging criminals, one of whom has been hired to kill his friend. In one last night of debacuhery, they hit up a brothel, steal cars, evade the police but must also face choices they've made over the years. Now we finally have our first look at the geriatric trio in the film directed by "Lost" and Super Mario Bros. star Fisher Stevens. Hopefully this photo means a trailer is on the way sometime soon.

Here's our first look at Fisher Stevens' Stand-Up Guys via The Film Stage:

Stand-Up Guys - First Look

Fisher Stevens (producer of The Cove) directs Stand Up Guys from a script by Noah Haidle. Val (Al Pacino) is released from prison after serving twenty-eight years for refusing to give up one of his close criminal associates. His best friend Doc (Christopher Walken) is there to pick him up, and the two soon reteam with another old pal, Hirsch (Alan Arkin). But one of the friends is keeping a dangerous secret, and his time to find an acceptable alternative is running out. The film is expected in theaters sometime in 2013. Stay tuned.

Two of these roles could easily be filled by Kevin Pollak.Maybe even all of them.

LOL! Super Mario Bro. star Fisher Stevens. He had a (scene stealing) supporting role. Why not mention is mainstream breakout role in Short Circuit, and the lead in the sequel?

I always remember him as "that -other- guy from Early Edition".

Pacino has been very hit and miss (more miss) lately. And by lately I mean the last 10-15 years. But Christopher Walken still commands my full attention.
