After a string of dramas and romantic roles, it’s great to see Ewan McGregor in action-mode in the first trailer for Son Of A Gun.
The plot revolves around 19-year-old Brenton Thwaites, who, in exchange for protection in jail, must pay off a debt to McGregor’s gang upon his release.
McGregor, you see, is public enemy No 1 and he has some unfinished business.
Cue shoot-outs, boiler suits, and monkey masks, plus lots of women (and we’re betting more than a few double crosses).
Judging by the trailer alone, the film bears seems to bear a passing resemblance to Danny Dyer’s dire 2005 gangster flick The Business, but with McGregor on-board and early buzz building around the film, we’d put money on this joining the likes of Animal Kingdom as an Oz crime classic.
Son Of A Gun is released on 16 January 2015
