Staten Island - Ethan Hawke will star in the drama Staten Island, which can be summed up as a day in the life of three New Yorkers who cross paths. The script for the film was written by James DeMonaco, which will also be his directorial debut. This isn't the first collaboration with the actor --
he recently penned Hawke's Assault on Precinct 13 -- one of the films not in NYC. The movie is a collection of intersecting stories between three residents of Staten Island and how they struggle to get ahead. Vincent D'Onofrio will appear as the leader of a mob ring.

 Ethan Hawke is set to topline the indie drama “Staten Island,” with James DeMonaco making his directorial debut. DeMonaco’s script intersects the storylines of three of the borough residents and struggles of getting ahead. DeMonaco adapted the 2005 remake of John Carpenter’s “Assault on Precinct 13,” that stared Hawke. Filming is scheduled to begin late April in New York. - Production Weekly, March 2007 25
