A release date has been set for The Force movie, adapted from the Don Winslow novel
Fox has set a March 1, 2019 for The Force movie, based on the recently released Don Winslow novel. James Mangold (Logan) will direct the film with the script adapted by David Mamet (Glengary Glen Ross). The Force movie is about a group of corrupt NYPD officers will be produced by Ridley Scott’s Scott Free, alongside Michael Schaefer and Shane Salerno. The March 1, 2019 release date will put it in competition with only How to Train Your Dragon 3.
The novel is officially described as follows:
Our ends know our beginnings, but the reverse isn’t true . . .
All Denny Malone wants is to be a good cop.
He is “the King of Manhattan North,” a, highly decorated NYPD detective sergeant and the real leader of “Da Force.” Malone and his crew are the smartest, the toughest, the quickest, the bravest, and the baddest, an elite special unit given unrestricted authority to wage war on gangs, drugs and guns. Every day and every night for the eighteen years he’s spent on the Job, Malone has served on the front lines, witnessing the hurt, the dead, the victims, the perps. He’s done whatever it takes to serve and protect in a city built by ambition and corruption, where no one is clean—including Malone himself.
What only a few know is that Denny Malone is dirty: he and his partners have stolen millions of dollars in drugs and cash in the wake of the biggest heroin bust in the city’s history. Now Malone is caught in a trap and being squeezed by the Feds, and he must walk the thin line between betraying his brothers and partners, the Job, his family, and the woman he loves, trying to survive, body and soul, while the city teeters on the brink of a racial conflagration that could destroy them all.
