This year at the Tribeca Film Festival, Martin Scorsese‘s “Goodfellas” will be celebrating its 25th anniversary, with a screening and Q&A moderated by Jon Stewart. But it won’t be the only mafia tale hitting screens at the fest. “The Wannabe” tells its own story about a young man who always wanted to be a gangster….
Written and directed by Nick Sandow and starring “Boardwalk Empire” actor Vincent Piazza (who also produces) and Oscar winner Patricia Arquette, the 1990s-set story follows the Gotti-obsessed Thomas who falls in love with Rose who embark on a crime spree robbing the mob elite in New York City. And as you’ll see in this clip, getting their schemes off the ground isn’t always the easiest thing.
“The Wannabe” will have its first screening at Tribeca on Friday, April 17th. Watch below.
