Russell Crowe, Denzel Washington, Ridley Scott, and heroin smuggled inside the caskets of deceased U.S. servicemen = the all-new American Gangster. The Antoine Fuqua version of this film with Washington and Benicio del Toro was shuttered by Universal production chief Stacey Snider when the budget (over $100 million) appeared to be spiralling out of control. I don’t like the title (it sounds sucky and dopey…any movie title using the word “American” sounds tedious and unimaginative), but I want to see it, of course.
