Thoughts: No one does unimpressed grump like Frank Langella. Having recently read his book it’s clear that Langella is his biggest fan and the ego driven actor might just have a winner on his hands with this oddball buddy picture. Add Susan Sarandon in the mix and there’s nice potential for an interesting combination of futuristic cops and robbers and a little romance. New ideas are rare in Hollywood and this looks to be a fresh take on an old formula.
