I must confess that I had never heard of this project until the trailer below popped up online, but my interest regarding Taylor Hackford's (The Devil's Advocate, Ray) Love Ranch has been instantly piqued. Joe Pesci and Helen Mirren will star as Charlie and Grace Bontempo, a married couple who open up Nevada's first legal brothel. Sergio Peris-Mencheta will play a heavyweight boxer who complicates things once Charlie tries to use him to expand his empire. Bryan Cranston, of "Breaking Bad" fame, will also have a supporting role.


Although the film is set for a limited release on June 30th, it has the potential to be in Oscar discussion as 2010 begins to wind down. Pesci's role seems like it will share similarities with the likes of Goodfellas and Casino, but the fact that he is the lead character this time around should change things up a bit. Give the trailer a watch below and let me know if you are as impressed as I am.
