Cynthia Nixon and Sigourney Weaver join Woody Harrelson in Rampart
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Cynthia Nixon, Sigourney Weaver, Steve Buscemi, Anne Heche, Robin Wright, Woody Harrelson, Ice Cube and Ben Foster have all signed on to star in the crime-thriller RAMPART for director Oren Moverman. The film is going to deal with the huge L.A.P.D. scandal in the 90’s, with Harrelson playing a central character. But how far they’re going to take the story and what they’re going to deal with is still unclear. I mention this because the Rampart scandal is one of the largest cases of police corruption in the history of the United States and uncovering every little mystery would be quite a chore.
For example, it is believed that three of the police officers that were caught up in the scandal are responsible for murdering the Notorious B.I.G. Not only that, but many of the officers were found to be on the payroll of Suge Knight. The scandal is scary, to say the least, with officers found guilty of taking bribes and beating, blackmailing and even murdering people for money.
