London Boulevard marks the highly-anticipated directorial debut from William Monahan, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter behind 2006's The Departed. The sizzling crime drama draws from Ken Bruen's novel of the same title and stars Colin Farrell as Mitchell, an ex-con who finds work as a handyman and bodyguard of an introverted young movie star named Charlotte, played by Keira Knightley. Eventually, Mitchell finds himself in a twisted game with the mob, lead by a burly boss portrayed by Ray Winstone.
Anna Friel, Stephen Graham, Ben Chaplin, and Ophelia Lovibond also star in London Boulevard, which is slated to his U.S. theaters in February 2011.
