The European Film Market (which runs concurrently with the Berlin International Film Festival) doesn't officially open until tomorrow, the 7th, but the deals have already started happening.

Thankfully, I've got writers over there who'll not only be reviewing films, but will share news worth posting here.

Here's the first of what will likely be several other updates to come.

Ice-T and Ja Rule co-star in the crime drama, Once Upon A Time In Brooklyn (it was previously titled GOAT), along with Vincent Pastore (Goodfellas), William Demeo (The Sopranos), Armand Assante and others, in a story that centers on a man who, after serving several prison sentences, is released, and...

... craving a life of inescapable crime, but desperate to honor his family, Bobby must decide whether to make his family proud or destroy what generations of Baldanos have built before him. A twist ending reveals what truths Bobby always knew but was too afraid to face: Wrong turn, Wrong choices, Wrong guy

The film, desribed as gritty, was written and directed by Paul Borghese, and, announced this morning, has been acquired by Grindstone Entertainment (North American rights on all platforms).

Expect the film to be released (likely on home video/VOD) this spring.
