Following yesterday’s report that Vertical Entertainment has acquired the U.S. rights to Josh Trank’s long-in development film Capone, the official trailer for the upcoming Al Capone biopic crime drama has been released, featuring Oscar nominee Tom Hardy as America’s most notorious gangster. The film is expected to make its long-awaited debut on VOD on May 12 with an on-demand 48-hour rental. However, depending on the currently global situation, Vertical Entertainment and Redbox Entertainment are still planning to release the film in theaters this summer. Check out the video in the player below!
A ruthless businessman and bootlegger who ruled Chicago with an iron fist, Al Capone (Tom Hardy) was the most infamous and feared gangster of American lore. At the age of 47, following nearly a decade of imprisonment, dementia rots Capone’s mind and his past becomes present as harrowing memories of his violent and brutal origins melt into his waking life.
Co-starring in Capone are Linda Cardellini (Dead to Me) as Capone’s long-suffering wife Mae, Matt Dillon (Crash) as his closest friend Johnny, Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks) as his doctor Karlock, and Kathrine Narducci (The Sopranos) as Rosie, one of his sisters. It will also feature Jack Lowden and Noel Fisher.
Capone is written and directed by Josh Trank (Fantastic Four, Chronicle) and produced by Aaron L. Gilbert (Fences, Beatriz at Dinner) for BRON, Russell Ackerman and John Schoenfelder (Hold the Dark, Tau) for Addictive Pictures, and Academy Award nominee Lawrence Bender (Inglorious Basterds, Good Will Hunting, Pulp Fiction) for A Band Apart, alongside executive producer Jason Cloth of Creative Wealth Media.
A number of actors have portrayed Al Capone over the years, including, Paul Muni (The Shame of a Nation), Rod Steiger (Al Capone), Neville Brand (The Scarface Mob), Jason Robards (The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre), Ben Gazzara (Capone), Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire), Anthony LaPaglia (Road to Perdition), and, perhaps most famously, Robert DeNiro in Brian DePalma’s The Untouchables.
