The film tells the true story of Thomas and Rose, a modern day Bonnie and Clyde couple who become obsessed by the 1992 trial of John Gotti and see it as an opportunity to rise up in the mob ranks. After the two perform a series of robberies, they attempt to make their mark and gain mafia respect by going after certain jury members.

Watch: Bonnie and Clyde Meet Martin Scorsese in Gangster-Fueled 'The Wannabe' Trailer
After its premiere earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival, the Martin Scorsese-backed crime drama “The Wannabe” has just released a new trailer, unsurprisingly taking more than a cue or two from Marty himself.
Written and directed by Nick Sandow (who plays the prison supervisor in “Orange is the New Black”), the gangster flick stars Vincent Piazza and Patricia Arquette in her first role since her Oscar-winning performance in “Boyhood.” Gangster vets Michael Imperioli, Domenick Lombaradozzi and David Zayas round out the impressive ensemble.
“The Wannabe” will be released in theaters and on VOD on December 4 via Momentum and Orion Pictures.
