Los Angeles [USA], June 10 (ANI): It seems like Al Capone is all set to take on the streets again. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Milo Gibson will portray the character of infamous gangster Al Capone, alongside Sean Faris, Jamie Lynn Sigler and Peter Facinelli. The movie is set during the 1920s gangland wars in the city. Timothy Woodward Jr. is directing 'In the Absence of Good Men' for his Status Media & Entertainment banner. Lauren de Normandie, James Cullen Bressack, and Jarrett Furst are producing the flick. The story revolves around the bloody wars between the Italian and Irish mobs as Capone and his right hand man "Machine Gun" Jack McGurn (Faris) battle Bugs Moran (Facinelli), culminating in the famous St. Valentine's Day Massacre. The real-life event took place on February 14, 1929 and saw seven men die in a machine gun attack thought to be ordered by Capone. Sigler is playing famous flapper dancer Lulu Rolfe, love interest to amateur boxer-turned-mobster McGurn, who is at the heart of the story. The film comes thirty years after Robert De Nero played Capone in the mobster classic 'The Untouchables'. The flick is currently in production. (ANI)
