Plot[edit]

The story takes place in the 1990s. The film is about clashes between a Kern County deputy and a Los Angeles detective that occur during the investigation of a serial killer.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

The first draft was written in 1993 for Steven Spielberg to direct. However, Spielberg passed because it was too dark. Clint Eastwood, Warren Beatty, and Danny DeVito were all separately attached to direct before Hancock decided to helm his own screenplay.[2] In March 2019, Denzel Washington signed on to star in the film.[3] In May, Rami Malek joined the cast.[4] In August, Jared Leto entered into talks for the role of a serial killer.[5] Natalie Morales, Joris Jarsky, Sheila Houlahan and Sofia Vassilieva were cast in September.[6][7] In October, Michael Hyatt, Kerry O'Malley, Jason James Richter, Isabel Arraiza and John Harlan Kim joined the cast of the film.[8][9][10] In November, Chris Bauer joined the cast.

Filming[edit]

Principal photography began on September 2, 2019, in Los Angeles, California.[11] Principal photography wrapped in December 2019.

Music[edit]

The film's score will be composed by Thomas Newman.[12]

Release[edit]

The film is scheduled for release on January 29, 2021 in theaters by Warner Bros. Pictures. The film will also have a simultaneous release on the HBO Max streaming service for 31 days, as part of Warner Bros.' plans for all of its 2021 films.[1][13]
