Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin in a new photo from Stand Up Guys
An action/dramedy to look for early next year is STAND UP GUYS which stars Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin. Directed by Fisher Stevens, STAND UP GUYS follows three retired gangsters who reunite for one “epic night”. Not surprisingly, STAND UP GUYS never hit my radar as I don’t really follow the careers of Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin. However, a film of this nature isn’t too surprising considering how well the film RED did in 2010, apparently audiences like seeing their aging stars get into rumbles and awkward situations in their later years. Look for STAND UP GUYS to hit theaters on January 11, 2013 and expect to see a trailer in the next couple of months.
In case you missed it, Al Pacino will also be lending his voice to the upcoming sequel DESPICABLE ME 2 which will hit theaters on July 3, 3013. There still hasn’t been any information on what the film will be about, but expect that to leak by the end of the year as well. (Deadline)
