There’s old school, and then there’s OLD school.
Stand Up Guys stars Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin, three of the most recognizable actors over 65 working today, in one movie as retired mobsters reunited for a night of drug, sex and guns-filled debauchery. Pacino plays Val (“Al” - “Val” - go figure), just out from a long stint in prison. Walken is Val’s very Walken-ish double-crossing best friend Doc, and Arkin plays another friend, Hirsch. Lionsgate is releasing the movie, pegged as both a drama and an action comedy, with a December awards-qualifying run, before its nationwide opening Jan. 11, 2013.
