Nightcrawler filmmaker, Dan Gilroy, is back in the director’s chair helming another intense film.
Sony Pictures Entertainment has today released a trailer for gritty thriller Roman J. Israel, Esq. which sees Academy Award winner Denzel Washington dive deep into the underbelly of the Los Angeles Criminal court system.
In Roman J. Israel, Esq. Washington stars as a driven and idealistic defense attorney whose life is turned upside down when turbulent events challenge the activism that defined his career.
“Each one of us is greater than the worst thing we have ever done.”
Washington is joined by co-star Colin Farrell, who plays the ambitious, monied-up lawyer who recruits Roman to his firm.
The film is produced by Todd Black (The Pursuit of Happyness), Jennifer Fox (Nightcrawler), and Brian Oliver (Black Swan).
Roman J. Israel, Esq. made its debut at the Toronto Film Festival last month, and is set to hit cinemas November 3. Check out the trailer below:
