Anthony Mandler In Talks To Direct THE LAST DAYS OF AMERICAN CRIME
It seems that commercial and music video director Anthony Mandler is set to direct a big screen adaptation of the graphic novel The Last Days of American Crime. More after the jump...
We haven't heard much about the big screen version of The Last Days of American Crime, which is based on the graphic novel of the same name. Back in 2010, Sam Worthington confirmed that he signed on to star in the film, and that they are trying to find a director. At some point, the Law Abiding Citizen director F. Gary Gray was attached to helm The Last Days of American Crime, but I guess that is not happening. According to Deadline, music video director Anthony Mandler is in talks to bring this graphic novel to the big screen, and that would be his feature directing debut. Report doesn't mention anything about Worthington, and if he is still set to portray a guy that assembles a team to pull off his final big heist. One thing that we didn't know, is that Noomi Rapace was also attached to star, but nothing is confirmed.
In the not-too-distant future as a final response to terrorism and crime, the U.S. government plans in secret to broadcast a signal making it impossible for anyone to knowingly commit unlawful acts. To keep this from the public, the government creates a distraction, installing a new currency system using digital charge cards.
Enter: Graham Bricke. A career criminal never quite able to hit the big score, Graham intends to steal one of the charging stations, skip the country and live off unlimited funds for the rest of his life. But the media has leaked news of the anti-crime signal one week before it was to go live...and now Graham and his team have just a few days to turn the crime of the century into the last crime in American history.
