The sequel to a Swedish drug-smuggling thriller film Snabba Cash (retitled in English to the less-memorable Easy Money) arrives in theaters and on VOD on February 14th, 2014, the same week that Joel Kinnaman‘s RoboCop remake hit screens.
In a follow-up to the critically-acclaimed foreign thriller, the Swedish actor will be on the other side of the law, returning in the lead role of JW, a morally complicated man than an indestructible heroic cop. This time around, it’s Iranian-born director Babak Najafi at the helm for the sequel, Easy Money: Hard to Kill, while Daniel Espinosa worked as exec producer.
Therefore, a new U.S. trailer and poster is now available for the second chapter of the trilogy, based on Swedish author Jens Lapidus‘ best-selling crime books that centered on an insignificant business student who transforms into a powerful drug trafficker.
Watch the trailer below.
Here’s the synopsis:
JW (Joel Kinnaman), the promising business student who became an organized coke smuggler in EASY MONEY, is serving hard time in prison and is struggling to get back on an honest path. There are glimmers of hope in his life: some venture capitalists are interested in a new piece of trading software he’s developed, and while behind bars he’s made peace with an old enemy. This all proves to be an illusion. On leave from prison, and back in contact with his former gang, JW learns that once you’ve walked in the shoes of a criminal there just may be no going back.
