Allen Hughes, one half of the Hughes brothers who gave us Menace II Society and The Book of Eli, goes solo with Broken City, a crime drama he directed which stars Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe. The film follows an NYPD cop named Billy Taggart (Mark Wahlberg) who follows the Mayor of New York’s wife to find out if she is cheating and while doing so, stumbles upon a much larger scandal.

At the film’s recent press day, Hughes showed up to discuss all things Broken City. He spoke about his evolution as a filmmaker, making his first film without his brother, how Mark Wahlberg got involved in the film and more.

Check it out below.

We Got This Covered: Alan, can we ask you about your evolution as a filmmaker from Menace II Society to this movie? There seems to be a through line with the material that you choose. »
