Motherless Brooklyn photos reveal first look at star-studded cast
Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first look images (via Vanity Fair) for their forthcoming crime drama Motherless Brooklyn, featuring our first look at the cast led by director Edward Norton, Bruce Willis, Alec Baldwin, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Willem Dafoe. Check out the full photos in the gallery below!
Motherless Brooklyn is an adaptation of the Jonathan Lethem detective novel set in NYC during the 1950s that follows Lional (Norton), a private detective with Tourette’s Syndrome as he tries to solve the murder of his mentor and only friend, Frank Minna, as portrayed by Willis. Armed only with a few clues and his obsessive mind, Norton’s character unravels closely guarded secrets that hold the fate of the whole city in the balance.
Rounding out the stellar ensemble cast are Cherry Jones, Ethan Suplee, Leslie Mann, Josh Pais, Fisher Stevens, Michael K. Williams, and Robert Wisdom. Audiences have seen the impressive work executed by a number of those involved in the film, so hopefully it will feature characters compelling enough to warrant having these names attached.
Norton not only directs and stars in the film (his second directorial feature following 2000’s Keeping the Faith), he is tackling producing duties as well with his Class 5 Films producing partner Bill Migliore along with Gigi Pritzker (Drive) and Rachel Shane (Lawless). Executive producers include Michael Bederman, Adrian Alperovich, Sue Kroll, Robert F. Smith, Brian Sheth and Daniel Nadler.
Motherless Brooklyn is set for a release on November 1.
