Coming off the Twilight series, actor Peter Facinelli is trying his hand in the writing game with Loosies. His screenplay debut is directed Michael Corrente (American Buffalo) and comes out of nowhere, as it is currently on VOD and hitting theaters early next year. Facinelli plays a NYC pickpocket that runs into trouble with some news from a past girlfriend. The low-budget feel is clear, but the plot is somewhat intriguing. With a supporting cast that includes Vincent Gallo, Michael Madsen, Joe Pantoliano, and Thor‘s Jaimie Alexander, it could be worth checking out to see if Facinelli has any talent with the pen. Check out the trailer below via Apple.
A young pickpocket in the New York subways, living a fast, free, lifestyle is confronted by a woman whom he had a one night affair with, she informs him that she is now pregnant with his child, he must now choose between continuing the lifestyle he lead or take responsibility for his actions.
