Patricia Arquette Has Mafia Dreams in New 'The Wannabe' Trailer

'The Wannabe'

The true-crime drama will be out in theaters on Dec. 4.

The Wannabe looks like Bonnie and Clyde with a hint of Goodfellas and a dash of The Juror.

The film tells the true story of Thomas and Rose, who attempted to climb the mafia ranks after becoming obsessed with the 1992 trial of John Gotti. (You know it's the '90s because they talk about Blockbuster Video.) In order to make their mark in the world of underground crime, the two start to go after some of the jurors of the Gotti trial.

The trailer for the film sees Vincent Piazza and Patricia Arquette playing mobsters. They hold up poker games, drive getaway cars and live lavishly.

The Wannabe is Arquette's first role since her Oscar-winning turn in Richard Linklater's Boyhood.

The true-crime drama, which had its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, was written and directed by Nick Sandow. The king of modern gangster cinema, Martin Scorsese, executive produced the film.

Watch the trailer for the film below.
