UPDATED: 2X: Another image and artwork for this movie can be checked out at the bottom.
And here is the synopsis:
“What bad things will good men do for their families?
A stolid, old guard policeman, Ridgeman (Gibson) and his volatile younger partner, Anthony ( Vaughn), find themselves suspended when a video of them strong-arming a suspect becomes the media’s special du jour. Low on cash and with no other options, these two embittered soldiers descend into the criminal underworld to gain their just due.
On the other side of the law, Henry Jones comes home from years in prison to find his mother and disabled brother living in squalor. The ex-convict needs a way to help and to this end, his childhood friend Biscuit introduces him to a ruthless crime boss whose ambitious plans put him and his pal in direct conflict with the two renegade officers.
In the hardboiled world of DRAGGED ACROSS CONCRETE, who lives, who dies, and who gets rich is a fate written in bullets.”
UPDATED: Here’s a shot from this movie. I mean at this point it’s pretty much a lock for movie of the year, 2019. What else is going to compete with this? Maybe even film of the fucking decade!
PREVIOUSLY: In case you had forgotten, real life friends Vince Vaughn and Mel Gibson are teaming up for the action/thriller Dragged Across Concrete. Now, the cast is expanding with some cool additions. Variety reports that Don Johnson, Michael Jai White and Laurie Holden are appearing in the movie.
It could have all the makings of a classic.
In the movie, Gibson portrays an old guard policeman while Vaughn plays his volatile younger partner. The duos find themselves suspended when a video of their strong-arming tactics become the media’s special du jour. Low on cash and with no other options, these two embittered soldiers descend into the criminal underworld to gain their just due, but instead find far more than they wanted awaiting them in the shadows.
Lionsgate acquired U.S. distribution rights to the project at the start of the Cannes Film Festival. Maybe best of all? It’s from the director of Bone Tomahawk, which is the best western in years!
