“Nightcrawler” writer/director Dan Gilroy’s new legal thriller, previously titled “Inner City,” has scored an odd but more distinct new moniker. It will now be titled “Roman Israel, Esq.”.
Denzel Washington stars in the film about a Los Angeles attorney who is offered a job at a prestigious law firm after the death of his longtime partner. He takes on a case that has life-altering repercussions.
Colin Farrell and Carmen Ejogo also star in the Sony Pictures film which just wrapped filming and is aiming for a late 2017 release – opening up Washington for potential awards consideration.
Jennifer Fox and Todd Black are producing.
