THE SON OF NO ONE: Tracy Morgan Gets Serious

At the very beginning, a hint of the end. As the Sundance Film Festival gets rolling, a trailer for the festival’s closing night film, Dito Montiel’s THE SON OF NO ONE, has just been released. The picture stars Channing Tatum and Tracy Morgan as two men who got away with murder as young boys and whose lives begin to unravel as their secrets emerge. Al Pacino, Katie Holmes, Ray Liotta and Juliette Binoche also star.

Judging from the trailer (below), the movie marks a real departure from Morgan. “Comedy is a comfort zone for me and I don’t mind coming out of my comfort zone,” the 30 Rock star recently told MTV News of his decision to tackle a dramatic role in the film.

“It’s an intense movie,” Tatum added. “I think Tracy Morgan is going to shock the world. Nobody has ever seen him do drama or anything like that.”
