What do you get when you cross We Own the Night with Training Day? Somewhere in between, you just might find an upcoming movie called Pride and Glory. I came across the trailer to this film while flipping through channel surfing and then I stumbled across “Nothing But Trailers” on HDnet.
The main reason why I am interested in Pride and Glory is that it stars Ed Norton, one of the actors that I enjoy watching most. Edward Norton was absolutely brilliant in films like American History X and Red Dragon, so I fully expect him to steal the screen yet once again in Pride and Glory. (I hope it doesn’t bomb like The Illusionist.) It certainly helps that he has guys like Jon Voight (who was great in Varsity Blues) and Colin Farrell (exceptional in Phone Booth) to round the cast. Yes, Pride and Glory could just turn out to be another cop movie, but the trailer has me captivated. It looks simply brilliant.
The plot summary on IMDB reads:
A saga centered on a multi-generational family of New York City Police officers. The family’s moral codes are tested when Ray Tierney (Edward Norton), investigates a case that reveals an incendiary police corruption scandal involving his own brother-in-law (Colin Farrell). For Ray, the truth is revelatory, a Pandora’s Box that threatens to upend not only the Tierney legacy but the entire NYPD.
Pride and Glory is reportedly finished shooting, but no release date has been announced yet.
