With decades of stellar work on their resume, it’s somewhat surprising that Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins never had a chance to collaborate, until now. Misconduct, previously titled Beyond Deceit, finds the pair putting pressure on Josh Duhamel‘s lawyer character as he fights a corrupt pharmaceutical system. The directorial debut of Shintaro Shimosawa, we now have the first trailer ahead of a February release.
“Working with two of this generation’s greatest actors was everything you could imagine – terrifying, humbling, mentoring but ultimately the most gratifying experience of my life,” Shimosawa tell USA Today. “Anthony always felt a scary feeling about him (even if) this man never spoke aggressively or threateningly. He knew this man was deadly,” says Shimosawa. “Anthony was chilling on camera, but between takes he couldn’t be a friendlier guy.”
Check out the trailer below for the film also starring Malin Akerman, Julia Stiles, and Alice Eve.
Misconduct hits theaters and VOD on February 5th.
