We caught up with Michael Peña and director David Ayer at Comic-Con in San Diego to talk about their new movie 'End of Watch, the grueling training that went into preparing for the role, portraying police work accurately, working with co-star Jake Gyllenhaal, the toughest action scene to film, the funnest scene to shoot, what he likes about working on gritty films and respect for law enforcement after shooting the film.
End of Watch hits theaters on September 21st, 2012.
Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Peña
End Of Watch stars Academy Award® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña as young Los Angeles police officers Taylor and Zavala as they patrol the city's meanest streets of south central Los Angeles.
Giving the story a gripping, first-person immediacy, the action unfolds through footage from the handheld HD cameras of the police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras, and citizens caught in the line of fire to create a riveting portrait of the city's most dangerous corners, the cops who risk their lives there every day, and the price they and their families are forced to pay.
