Big city mobsters and the Broadway stage collide hilariously in this side-splitting all-star comedy!

John Cusack stars as David Shayne, an idealistic young writer who'll do anything to get his first Broadway play off the ground -- even if it means teaming up with the mob.

Surrounded by a wacky cast of characters including a gangster's ditzy and talentless girlfriend (Jennifer Tilly), a tipsy actress (Dianne Wiest), and a mob hit man (Chazz Palminteri), Shayne's got to pull it all off before the curtain falls and bullets start to fly!
