at first blush, the title made me think of Hussein and Emanuel

Anybody want to post odds on whether Dennis Farina will be in it?

Same here.
Moore making an unflattering film about the Mob would kill two birds with one Uzi.

I recently rewatched The Keep, Mann's first film. Despite having Ian McKellen, Gabriel Byrne, and Lance Hendriksen, it was easily one of the worst movies I've seen. It's a movie about Nazis in Transylvania and the score is just constant cheesy 80's synthesizers. Horrendous.

Ha, I remember that movie, I saw it like 25 years ago, I was a kid, and I enjoyed it.

My standards were pretty low back then.

This, you beat me to it. Moore following a Chicago gangster with a video camera Roger & Me style would be funny, but brief.

Mann has done some fun things, I'd be willing to give this movie a shot.

Hopefully it will be better than Public Enemies. The whole Accardo-Giancana-CIA story was fascinating.


Johnny Roselli, and Santo Trafficante Jr. were also in on it. At the Fountainbleu hotel, Robert Maheu met with Santo, Johnny , and Sam, offering them $100,000 to take care of Castro. Trafficante agreed; Castro is still alive; money was never recovered.
