In theaters now, RAMPART boasts Oscar-worthy performances as it weaves a story of a corrupt Los Angeles cop trying to claw his way out of an Internal Affairs investigation that could cost him his job. Gritty and intense, the film is directed by OREN MOVERMAN, who re-wrote the original screenplay by legendary novelist JAMES ELLROY. Set in 1999 against the backdrop of the L.A. Rampart scandal, the movie stars WOODY HARRELLSON, BEN FOSTER (who also produced), ANNE HECHE, CYNTHIA NIXON, ROBIN WRIGHT, SIGOURNEY WAVER, STEVE BUSCEMI and ICE CUBE.
Re-writing the work of an author with the reputation of ELLROY might seem, at the least, daunting. During a press conference to promote the film, MOVERMAN explained that he was just doing what was necessary to get the story to the screen. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
