From the screenwriter of street-smart "Training Day", VVS Films will release writer/director David Ayer’s new 'gangs and cops' drama "End of Watch" on DVD/Blu-ray and VOD, January 22, 2013, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Peña, Anna Kendrick, America Ferrera, Natalie Martinez and Cody Horn :
"...a powerful story of family, friendship, love, honour and courage, 'End of Watch' stars Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña as police officers 'Taylor' and 'Zavala' as they patrol the meanest streets of gang-infested south central Los Angeles.
"Giving the story a gripping, first‐person immediacy, the action unfolds entirely through footage from the handheld HD cameras of the police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras and citizens caught in the line of fire.
"'End of Watch' is a riveting portrait of the city’s darkest, most violent corners, the cops who risk their lives there every day and the price they and their families are forced to pay..."
Cast also includes David Harbour, Frank Grillo, Cle Sloan, Jaime FitzSimons, Shondrella Avery, Maurice Compte, Yahira 'Flakiss' Garcia and Kristy Wu.
"The script started as a pure found footage kind of thing." said Ayer about the initial lensing of his film that also incorporates 'first-person shooter' video game views during numerous, tense action sequences.
