Focus Features today unveiled the first trailer for The Outfit, a crime thriller starring Academy Award winner Mark Rylance (Dunkirk, Bridge of Spies), which it will release in theaters on February 25, 2022.
The film directed by Oscar-winning screenwriter Graham Moore (The Imitation Game) follows Leonard (Rylance), an expert English tailor who used to craft suits on London’s world-famous Savile Row. But after a personal tragedy, he’s ended up in Chicago, operating a small tailor shop in a rough part of town where he makes beautiful clothes for the only people around who can afford them: a family of vicious gangsters.
We learn in the trailer that the film takes its name from a mob “network of every big time crew” from Santa Monica to Coney Island.
“It doesn’t terribly much matter where I am. I have me shears,” Rylance’s Leonard says. “This isn’t art. This is a craft. You cannot make something good until you understand the customer.”
Moore and Johnathan McClain wrote the script for the film, which also stars Zoey Deutch (The Politician, Set It Up), Johnny Flynn (The Dig, Emma.), Dylan O’Brien (Love and Monsters, 20th Century’s Maze Runner franchise), Nikki Amuka-Bird (Old, Avenue 5), and Simon Russell Beale (Benediction, Radioactive).
Scoop Wasserstein produced with Ben Browning and Amy Jackson, with McClain exec producing.
