Michael Caine and Emily Mortimer have teamed up for the British thriller Harry Brown, which has been described as a "modern urban western" by producers. MARV Films is producing the picture.
Caine will play the title role of an elderly widow and former serviceman who lives in a community marred by urban blights such as drugs and gun crimes. When Brown's best friend is murdered, he turns into a vigilante who takes matters of justice into his own hands. Mortimer will portray a young police officer in the film.
The film begins shooting in the U.K. this November.
