Oldman, Akerman And Ventimiglia Join Criminal Empire for Dummies

Labels: ,

Gary Oldman, Malin Akerman and Milo Ventimiglia. Not really actors you’d expect to cross paths, but perhaps that’s only because I’m picturing Carnegie from The Book of Eli, Lila from The Heartbreak Kid and Peter Petrelli from Heroes making a movie together. Anyway, the trio has signed on to join Michael Clarke Duncan in Cliff Dorfman’s feature directorial debut Criminal Empire for Dummies, which is set to begin filming this month in New Orleans.

According to Variety, the plot focuses on “a charismatic young man (Ventimiglia) who relates the rules of running a criminal empire through flashbacks to his own rise from a tragic childhood and the ghetto to multinational kingpin.” Ventimiglia doesn’t really strike me as the kingpin type, but can get pretty rough and tough on Heroes. Clarke Duncan, on the other hand, is a more believable crime kingpin, but perhaps that’s only because he literally played Kingpin in Daredevil. Other than Ventimiglia’s, the article doesn’t delve into the other roles. Regardless, I’m convinced there’s nothing Oldman can’t do and Akerman has some serious talent we’ll be seeing more of in the coming years.
