ON

Open Road Films has set September 28, 2012 for the nationwide release of End of Watch, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Peña, Anna Kendrick, Frank Grillo and America Ferrera and is written and directed by David Ayer (writer/director of Street Kings and Harsh Times; screenwriter of Training Day, The Fast and the Furious and S.W.A.T.).

A powerful story of family, friendship, love, honor and courage, End of Watch stars Gyllenhaal and Peña as young Los Angeles police officers Taylor and Zavala as they patrol the city’s meanest streets of south central Los Angeles.

Giving the story a gripping, first-person immediacy, the action unfolds entirely through footage from the handheld HD cameras of the police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras, and citizens caught in the line of fire to create a riveting portrait of the city’s most dangerous corners, the cops who risk their lives there every day, and the price they and their families are forced to pay.

End of Watch is produced by David Ayer’s Crave Films, John Lesher under his Le Grisbi Productions, and Nigel Sinclair and Matt Jackson of Exclusive Media who also financed the film, in association with Emmett/Furla Films. Exclusive Media holds worldwide distribution rights. Executive producers are Guy East and Exclusive Media’s Tobin Armbrust, Jake Gyllenhaal, Adam Kassan, Chrisann Verges, Randall Emmett and George Furla of Emmett/Furla Films, Stepan Martirosyan and Remington Chase.
