Here's the first poster for Dito Montiel's upcoming Sundance closing night film "The Son Of No One," which features one of the most eclectic casts in recent times including Channing Tatum, Tracy Morgan, Katie Holmes, Ray Liotta, Juliette Binoche and Al Pacino.
Tatum will star as the pic's lead, reuniting with his "A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints" and "Fighting" helmer, playing a cop who "follows the footsteps of his deceased father and is assigned to the neighborhood where he grew up, the projects in Queens. The post 9/11 atmosphere there is tense and he soon runs into an old secret which threatens to destroy his life and family." One aspect of the film which we're particularly looking forward is to how Morgan -- a comedian best known for his ridiculous antics on "30 Rock" -- will take on his role of Tatum's best friend, one which presumably (unless there's been some rewrites) has some dramatic depth as Terrence Howard was originally cast in it.
The film will also see Holmes play the protagonist's girlfriend, Binoche as a reporter and, judging from the following image, Pacino and Liotta as mentors or informants of some kind. Tatum had previously described the film as "sort of a cop psycho drama, emphasizing the psycho part of it. DeNiro will have a little part . . . Ray Liotta will be playing a big part. It's going to be nuts." Of course, that was back when DeNiro was slotted in the role that has since been take over by Al Pacino.
