Chronicle and Fantastic Four director Josh Trank is back, this time with a movie about the sunset years of notorious gangster Al Capone.
Tom Hardy plays Capone, who is suffering from syphilis and the mistrust of his family following his 11-year sentence at United States Penitentiary, Atlanta. The trailer showcases the once-lively gangster’s deterioration as he wanders around his home, as well as government efforts to put him back behind bars.
Linda Cardellini stars as Mae, Al’s wife, and Jack Lowden stars as the FBI agent intent on putting Capone back in jail. Matt Dillon, Noel Fisher, and Kyle MacLachlan co-star.
The film, originally titled Fonzo, is set to hit VOD on May 12, with Trank proclaiming on social media that it’s “[his] cut.” Trank also noted that the film was originally planned as a theatrical release, and that a big-screen run might happen later in the year.
Check out the trailer, which Trank posted to Twitter, below:
