The Son of No One movie scene

Channing Tatum is a New York cop in The Son of No One.

The cop crime thriller The Son of No One boasts a helluva cast, including such actors as Channing Tatum (The Eagle), Juliette Binoche (Chocolat), Tracy Morgan (TV’s 30 Rock) , Katie Holmes (TV’s The Kennedys) and Ray Liotta (Something Wild). Oh, and a guy named Al Pacino (Carlito’s Way).

Tatum stars in the movie as Jonathan White, a second-generation cop who gets in over his head when he’s assigned to re-open a double homicide cold case in his Queens, N.Y., neighborhood. An anonymous source feeding new information on the long-unsolved murders to a local reporter (Binoche) leads to evidence suggesting a possible cover-up by the former lead detective (Pacino). As Jonathan digs deeper into the assignment, a dark secret about the case emerges, which threatens to destroy his life and his family.

Written, directed and produced by Dito Montiel (Guide to Recognizing Your Saints), The Son of No One received a limited release to theaters in November 2011, following a limited theatrical and DVD rollout in such far-flung locales as Ukraine, Sweden, Bulgaria and Netherlands. It didn’t excite many movie-goers in the U.S., particularly the critics, who generally disliked the film.

Incidentally, Pacino’s part was originally slated to be played by Robert De Niro (Stone), but he dropped out at the last minute. Maybe De Niro’s last Fockers movie, Little Fockers, wasn’t such a bad idea considering how The Son of No One was received…

The DVD and Blu-ray of the R-rated film contain an audio commentary by Montiel and editor/executive producer Jake Pushinsky and a collection of deleted scenes.
