Synopsis

When Mitchell is released from prison after serving three years for a vicious attack he doesn’t even remember, Billy Norton is there to pick him up. But Norton works for Tommy Logan, a ruthless loan shark lowlife with plans Mitchell wants nothing to do with. Attempting to stay out of Logan’s way, he finds work at the Holland Park mansion of faded movie actress, Lillian Palmer, where he has to deal with her mysterious butler, Jordan. It isn’t long before Mitchell’s violent past catches up with him and people start getting hurt. When his disturbed sister Briony is threatened, Mitchell is forced to act.

Academy Award-winning screenwriter William Monahan (The Departed) has teamed with Quentin Curtis to acquire rights to London Boulevard. Monahan plans to co-produce, write, and make his directorial debut with the movie.

This is a masterful work of double dealing and suspense from one of the great crime writers of our time.

Nights and Weekends

Billy Wilder’s 1950 noir classic, Sunset Boulevard, is a dark and suspenseful drama—and it’s one of my favorite films.
