The script for the film was written by James DeMonaco, which will also be his directorial debut. This isn't the first collaboration with the actor -- he recently penned Hawke's Assault on Precinct 13 -- one of the films not in NYC. The movie is a collection of intersecting stories between three residents of Staten Island and how they struggle to get ahead. Hawke will topline the feature, which presumably means that he'll be one of the 3 Statenites. Considering the fact that DeMonaco's recent features have been crime and horror based (The Negotiator, Assault and Skinwalkers), I'm sure we can expect the usual melange of troubled souls drowning in bad choices. The movie will begin filming late next month.
