The official trailer has been released for the Russell Crowe-led psychological thriller “Sleeping Dogs”.
Despite the name, the film has no connection to the celebrated 2012 Hong Kong-set video game of the same name.
Crowe plays Roy Freeman, a former homicide investigator who is undergoing a cutting-edge Alzheimer’s treatment to combat his memory loss.
He is forced to grapple with the impact of an investigation from his former life after a death row inmate that Freeman arrested ten years prior for a brutal murder starts to proclaim his innocence.
Freeman enlists his former partner to help him revive the case and discover the truth – tearing through a tangled web of secrets and forcing Freeman to make some horrific discoveries.
Karen Gillan, Márton Csokas, Thomas M. Wright, Harry Greenwood, and Tommy Flanagan co-star in the film which is co-written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage (“Assassin’s Creed,” “Exodus: Gods and Kings”) from a script based on E.O. Chirovici’s novel “The Book of Mirrors”.
Cooper directs while Mark Fasano, Cooper, Collage and Pouya Shabazian produce the film which hits cinemas March 22nd.
