Woody Harrelson, Ice Cube to film “Rampart” in October

By Sean O’Connell Oren Moverman is about to move from Army soldiers to LAPD officers.

The director of the Oscar-nominated “The Messenger” will begin filming his follow-up, “Rampart,” in October, with Ice Cube and “Messenger” co-stars Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster in the cast. The film follows a series of questionable events in the police department’s Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums (CRASH)) anti-gang program during the 1990s.

Production Weekly reports that “Rampart” will film in Los Angeles in late October.

We’re most interested because Moverman will be working from a a screenplay by crime novelist James Ellroy, who penned the brilliant “L.A. Confidential” as well as the underrated “The Black Dahlia.” Combine Ellroy with an L.A.-based crime story, and we are there.

More details to come as they emerge.
