Focus Features has revealed the trailer, poster and photos for The Outfit movie, opening in theaters on February 25, 2022. You can watch the trailer using the player below and you’ll find the poster underneath.
The Outfit marks the feature directorial debut of Academy Award winner Graham Moore (The Imitation Game), who directs from his own screenplay which is co-written with actor/writer Johnathan McClain (Mad Men).
The Outfit movie is produced by Scoop Wasserstein, Ben Browning and Amy Jackson.
The film follows Leonard (Rylance), an English tailor who used to craft suits on London’s world-famous Savile Row. But after a personal tragedy, he’s ended up in Chicago, operating a small tailor shop in a rough part of town where he makes beautiful clothes for the only people around who can afford them: A family of vicious gangsters.
FilmNation Entertainment financed the film and sold rights to Focus Features to distribute the film worldwide. The reteaming of FilmNation Entertainment and Focus Features follows the success of their partnership on critically-acclaimed Promising Young Woman.
Academy Award nominee Dick Pope (Mr. Turner) serves as Director of Photography. Academy Award nominee Gemma Jackson (Aladdin) is the Production Designer. Academy Award winner William Goldenberg (Argo) serves as Editor, while Zac Posen and Sophie O’Neill are the Costume Designers.
“A truly great film starts with fantastic writing, and we’re thrilled to have Graham’s talent drive this film to its full potential as a highly entertaining crime drama,” said FilmNation Entertainment CEO Glen Basner previously. “We couldn’t think of a better home for this film than with the talented and likeminded team at Focus and can’t wait to gear up for yet another production during a time when our industry needs great films more than ever.”
Focus Features’ chairman Peter Kujawski added, “Like so many, we were blown away by Graham’s award-winning work in The Imitation Game and are thrilled to take part in his directorial debut.
“His storytelling talents seem limitless, and the caliber of artists he’s sewn together both behind and in front of the camera for The Outfit will undoubtedly bring this thriller to life in an exciting way. We are looking forward to joining our friends at FilmNation in this endeavor.”
Said Moore, “If you’d told me years ago, when Johnathan and I were first dreaming up this story, that I’d get to direct my first film with a cast as exquisitely talented as Mark, Zoey, Dylan and Johnny, I’d have said you were nuts. And honestly, if you’d said that back then, you might have been.
“This film is such a deep labor of love for me and our whole team, and I could not ask for better partners than our friends at FilmNation and Focus.”
Graham Moore is a New York Times bestselling novelist and Academy Award winning screenwriter. His novels (The Holdout, The Last Days of Night, The Sherlockian) have been published in 24 countries and translated into 19 languages.
His script for The Imitation Game won an Oscar and a Writer’s Guild Award, and was nominated for Golden Globe and BAFTA awards.
