Albert Brooks joins J.C Chandor’s A Most Violent Year


Albert Brooks has joined the cast of J.C Chandor’s “A Most Violent Year”, the drama starring Oscar Isaac, Jessica Chastain and Alfred Molina, says Deadline.

The title, picked up for distribution at Sundance by A24, is set in “New York in 1981, a year in which the city had one of its highest tallies of violent crime. An immigrant and his family are trying to grow their heating oil business and their ambition collides with the crime element.”

Brooks, reuniting with his “Drive” co-star Isaac on the movie, will play the latter’s attorney.
