Directed by Josh Trank (Fantastic Four, Chronicle), the film will be available on VOD on May 12th with an on-demand, 48-hour rental. In support of the theatrical community the film will also be available via Virtual Cinema with a portion of the proceeds going back to participating theaters.
Vertical and Redbox are still hoping for a North American theatrical release later in the summer as things return to normal. Details for release plans in the UK and other international territories will be announced soon.
Capone, which was previously titled “Fonzo,” was rated R for strong/bloody violence, pervasive language and some sexuality.
The film is described as follows:
“Once a ruthless businessman and bootlegger who ruled Chicago with an iron fist, Alfonse Capone (Hardy) was the most infamous and feared gangster of American lore. At the age of 47, following nearly a decade of imprisonment, dementia rots Alfonse’s mind and his past becomes present.
Harrowing memories of his violent and brutal origins melt into his waking life. As he spends his final year surrounded by family with the FBI lying in wait, this ailing patriarch struggles to place the memory of the location of millions of dollars he hid away on his property.”
In addition to Tom Hardy as Al Capone, the film stars Linda Cardellini as Mae Capone, Jack Lowden as FBI Agent Crawford, Matt Dillon as Johnny, Noel Fisher as Junior, and Kyle MacLachlan as Karlock.
Also appearing are Kathrine Narducci as Rosie Capone, Neal Brennan, Tilda Del Toro as Mona Lisa, Mason Guccione as Tony, and Caiden Acurio as Vince.
Trank wrote the script for the crime drama, which is produced by Russell Ackerman, Lawrence Bender, Aaron L. Gilbert, and John Schoenfelder. The companies behind the movie are Addictive Pictures, Bron Creative, Lawrence Bender Productions, and Redbox Entertainment.
