The film tells the true story of Thomas and Rose, a modern day Bonnie and Clyde who use the 1992 trial of John Gotti as an opportunity to rise up in the mob ranks. After the duo perform a series of robberies, they attempt to win the respect of the mafia by targeting certain jury members.
In the clip above, we see Thomas and Rose on the outside looking in at Hawaiian Moonlighters, a high-stakes gambling club full of big shot mafia players. While Thomas dreams up an expensive Hawaiian getaway paid for by mob money, a down-to-earth Rose would rather have Thomas promise they will never go back to jail.
Having premiered earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival, “The Wannabe” will be released in theaters and on VOD on December 4 via Momentum and Orion Pictures.
