The cast for the directorial debut of the writer of The Departed grows larger...

By three, to be precise, according to this in Variety:

Ray Winstone, David Thewlis and Anna Friel are set to join Keira Knightley and Colin Farrell in "London Boulevard."
William Monahan directs the crime drama this summer in London, with financing coming from Graham King's GK Films (Daily Variety, Jan. 22).
Drama revolves around a freshly paroled London criminal who becomes involved with a reclusive young actress.
Winstone will play a former crime boss.
Thewlis will play the reclusive actress' agoraphobic business manager, while Friel will portray the criminal's sister.
-Winstone especially is a good addition...this could turn out to be a pretty gritty crime flick...thoughts?


  1. definitely agree with you there....hopefully The Departed meets a Guy Ritchie film

  2. I hope not to the above poster, I'm sick of Guy Ritchie crime-comedies...I hope this isn't funny at all I hope its super dark.
