He captures a thief’s brother and the two form a bond while they track the other brother down. Co starring Robert Pattinson, Scott McNairy, David Field and Anthony Hayes.

There were a lot of discussions. We had so many conversations about the film, the start of the film, what he wanted to make. I think I always knew I was going to say yes. Even though I said no a couple of times at first — I was in the middle of a couple of other jobs and I was fairly burnt out. I wasn’t going to say yes easily. But in the back of my mind, I wanted to say yes because it was David and a lead role and an interesting film. I was prepared to do the work with David to the point where I could say yes. Had it been another director, a lesser director, I might have said, There isn’t enough character here, so I don’t know if I can say yes.
