Trailer Watch: State of Play trailer

A trailer for State of Play, The Last King of Scotland director Kevin MacDonald’s American redo of the BBC TV mini-series of the same name, is up on the interweb, and it looks like an interesting political/corporate conspiracy movie with a healthy dose of action. It’s never a good sign for a movie to run through three screenwriters — Matthew Michael Carnahan (The Kingdom), Tony Gilroy (the Bourne movies, Michael Clayton, Duplicity) and Billy Ray (The Shooter, Shattered Glass) — in order to craft its script, which apparently needed to be reworked once or twice in order to kowtow to its tumultuous line-up of stars, but the trailer looks promising anyway.

State of Play hits screens on April 17, 2009.

    So…Ben Affleck’s working again.

    Good for him…I guess.
