David Ayer‘s ongoing mission to make as many films about lawmen as possible, and to make those films really rather distinct from one another, takes yet another twist.
His follow-up to End of Watch is the somewhat more bombastic looking Sabotage. Compare the casting of Jake Gyllenhall in Watch to Arnold Schwarzenegger in this new picture and you’ll get some idea of the differing ambitions at work here.
The debt to Agatha Christie‘s And Then There Were None, or whatever you want to call it, is pretty obvious. Christie didn’t have her characters fire off quite so many rounds of ammunition, mind you.
Sabotage will be released on April 11th in the US, 25th in the UK.
