JAMES MARSHALL AND JEFF MONAHAN STAR IN GRITTY, URBAN COMEDY/DRAMA 'HITS'; SPECIAL APPEARANCE BY MARTIN SHEEN

 NEW YORK, Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Principal photography began last week in and around New York City on William R. Greenblatt's gritty, urban comedy/drama "HITS." The film stars James Marshall and Jeff Monahan with special appearance by Martin Sheen.
 A comedy with a dark side, "HITS" matches the wit and edge of "Good Fellas," with the action and dark humor of "48 Hours." Two young wanna-be New York mobsters, street smart cynical Dommy (James Marshall) and thoughtful naive Mickey (Jeff Monahan), take on a little freelance work from Vinnie and Kelly (Martin Sheen), the neighborhood mob bosses. The boys must follow and observe every move of a sharply dressed man identified only as "the mark." The miss-matched pair spend a tense weekend together in a beaten-up Buick with a broken radio and plenty of antacid.
 James Marshall stars as Dommy, the tough, young, would-be gangster who gets entangled with the mob when he agrees to a freelance "job" to make some cash. Marshall is a rising, young talent whose screen credits include "Gladiator," "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" and Rob Reiner's "A Few Good Men."
 Long-time producer William R. Greenblatt makes his directorial debut with "HITS." Greenblatt served as producer on a number of feature films and television movies including "Da," "Judgment in Berlin" and "Nightbreaker." He also produced many CBS "Schoolbreak Specials," including three Emmy Award-winning episodes: "Babies Having Babies" (directed by Martin Sheen), "No Means No" and Diane Keaton's directorial debut, "The Girl With the Crazy Brother."
 After spending three years as a police officer, writer Jeff Monahan, scripted "HITS" with co-writer Luke Toma.
 "HITS" is produced by William R. Greenblatt and Martha D. Humphreys.
