St. Vincent Adds Forest Whitaker and Ray Winston to the Mob
Posted 12.30.09 by reelz
Forest Whitaker, Ray Winstone, and Gong Li have joined Mickey Rourke in the cast of the mob movie St. Vincent.
St. Vincent stars Rourke as hitman Vincent Novena, who goes deep undercover portraying a priest in order to get close enough to kill his target. He soon discovers that playing the part of a good man is more dangerous than being a mob killer ever was. No good deed goes unpunished. The more Vincent opens up, the more vulnerable he becomes.
Director Walter Hill last teamed up with Rourke in 1986 to make Johnny Handsome, and also made such classics as 48 Hrs and The Warriors. Most recently, Hill directed the small-screen Western Broken Trail.
