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.
