Michael Caine To Play A Vigilante Loose in London

Justice has a new name and it's Harry Brown.

Michael Caine is set to play Harry Brown an elderly former serviceman drawn to vigilantism while living in a rundown area in Lodnon which is rife with gangs, guns and drugs.

Harry Brown also stars Emily Mortimer as a police woman, and is directed by Daniel Barber, who was Oscar nommed for short "The Tonto Women."

" 'Harry Brown' is a modern urban Western that reflects the stark realities of youth crime in the 21 century both in the U.K. and internationally," commented Thykier, adding that Caine's role "is an exciting and contemporary take on the iconic characters like Harry Palmer ('The Ipcress File') and Jack Carter ('Get Carter') that originally brought him to fame."
