Milo Gibson as Al Capone in Trailer for Crime Thriller 'Gangster Land'
"These guys are coming after you…!" Cinedigm has released an official trailer for a new crime thriller titled Gangster Land, from director Timothy Woodward Jr., of the western film Hickok also being released this year. Not quite Gangster Squad, not quite The Godfather, this indie mob film follows Al Capone's second in command, "Machine Gun" Jack McGurn, as played by Sean Faris. It tells the story of Capone's rise, but through the the eyes of McGurn. Milo Gibson (one of Mel's sons) plays Capone, and the full cast includes Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Peter Facinelli, Michael Paré, Jason Patric, Don Harvey, Mark Rolston, and Al Sapienza. This actually looks better than expected, but doesn't look like a knock out either. Take a look.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Timothy Woodward Jr.'s Gangster Land, direct from YouTube:
The story of America’s most famous mobsters and their rise to power, Gangster Land examines Al Capone's ascension through the eyes of his second in command, "Machine Gun" Jack McGurn (Faris). Once an amateur boxer, McGurn is lured into the Italian mafia after the murder of his step-father. Upon joining, he rises swiftly through the ranks along with friend and eventual Boss, Capone (Gibson). As the Italian mob becomes the most lucrative criminal organization in the country, tensions build with "Bugs" Moran (Facinelli) and the Irish mob which ignites a brutal gang war culminating with the St. Valentine's Day Massacre. Gangster Land is directed by American indie filmmaker Timothy Woodward Jr., of the films Throwdown, 7 Faces of Jack the Ripper, SWAT: Unit 887, Checkmate, Decomissioned, 4Got10, Weaponized, Traded, and Hickok previously. The screenplay is written by Ian Patrick Williams. Cinedigm will release Gangster Land in select theaters + on VOD starting December 1st this fall. Anyone interested?

Low budget plus high intentions. But, if the story is good. Seems like tired territory, and I wondered what happened to Peter Facinelli.

Never made it to the end.

I didn't either; but, if I happen to see it on a free weekend of HBO I'd probably watch it.

It has a tv movie feel for sure.

I liked the look of the movie...great color palette...like a very subdued Dick Tracy in some scenes

This is a way too mediocre rendering of that period ...

Nope, but on the other hand the dark tower with a 60 million budget did suck too!

Why isn't the Mayor Dever listed in the credits?
