Alpha Dog

Synopsis

New Line Cimema

(Release Date: Spring, 2006)
Director: Nick Cassavetes
Starring: Ben Foster, Shawn Hatosy, Emile Hirsch, Sharon Stone, Justin Timberlake and Bruce Willis

Inspired by actual events, Alpha Dog revolves around a mid-level drug dealer from the San Gabriel Valley whose thirst for power led him to become, at 19, the youngest man ever to appear on the FBI's Most Wanted list.

Emile Hirsch stars as teenage suburban drug dealer Johnny Truelove, an ambitious young man whose lifestyle is a mecca for guns, sex and drugs.

When a "client" cheats Johnny and a deal goes bad, he devises a plan to get his money back by kidnapping the client's younger brother - but it's not a typical kidnapping when it turns out that everyone knows and likes the kid.

So what now? Things take an unexpected twist as Johnny and his crew get caught up in the dangerous and violent world they once idealized. Featuring a strong ensemble cast that includes Hirsch, Justin Timberlake, Bruce Willis, Sharon Stone, Ben Foster, Shawn Hatosy and Anton Yelchin, Alpha Dog is written and directed by Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook, John Q).
