Below we have the trailer for Streets of Blood, set in Katrina-raved New Orleans and starring Val Kilmer, Sharon Stone, and 50 Cent. Last we spoke of it was in the casting stages, and I was feeling uncharacteristically chipper and hopeful and optimistic and upbeat that day, and described my feelings about the project as euphemistically as possible:
In promising casting news, director Charles Winkler (son of Irwin, but apparently not related to Henry) has assembled his principles for Streets of Blood, a movie about two police officers dealing with the lawlessness after Hurricane Katrina, a tragedy that has emboldened New Orleans and revealed the compassion and generosity of our United States government. Starring in the film will be Val Kilmer (awesome!), 50 Cent (double awesome!) and Sharon Stone (triple awesome!), who plans to put aside her valiant humanitarian efforts for the eight-week shoot that begins next month. How much fun would it be to hang out on the set with Sharon Stone for two months! I know, right?
And in that continuing tradition, here’s the trailer. It looks awesome. I just love the way that Sharon Stone and Val Kilmer’s accents sound so authentic! And that there must have been so very little batshit crazy on set. Plus, it looks like prostitutes give blow-jobs to guns! How cool is that? And my favorite part? At the end of the trailer, when it says, “Now on post-production,” as if to excuse what you just witnessed.
