‘Whole Lotta Sole’ Trailer – A Light, Brendan Fraser-Starring Comedy From the Director of ‘Hotel Rwanda’
Posted on Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012 by Angie Han
Don’t worry — though the groan-inducing title and involvement of Brendan Fraser suggest the worst, Whole Lotta Sole is not a stupider sequel to 2010’s Furry Vengeance. Instead, it’s an uncharacteristically lighthearted dramedy from Terry George, the writer/director behind such serious-minded works as Hotel Rwanda and Reservation Road.
Martin McCann (The Pacific) stars as Jimbo, a young father who’s in heavy debt to local crime boss Mad Dog Flynn (David O’Hara, The Departed). Desperate, Jimbo decides to hold up the local fish market (called Whole Lotta Sole, hence the title) but finds himself in even deeper trouble than before. In an attempt to break free, he takes hostage an American antiques shop manager Joe (Fraser) and his new girlfriend Sophie (Yaya DaCosta). Colm Meaney also stars, as the policeman detective on the case. Watch the trailer after the jump.
