From William Monahan, the screenwriter of "The Departed," comes another shoot-em-up mob story, but this time it's set across the pond.
"London Boulevard" follows a newly-freed ex-con (Colin Farrell) who tries to stay on the right side of the law, despite his connections in the London underground. He then takes the job of a bodyguard for a paparazzi-hunted retired actress (Keira Knightley).
Of course, Farrell's strays from the straight and narrow but, along the way, he also ends up a little bit in love.
Check out the newly released US trailer below. It looks like a nice mix of "The Bodyguard" and "In Bruges" plus Mr. French is back!
"London Boulevard" will open limited in theaters on November 11.
