The story follows retired detective Joe Mulwray (Freeman), pulled back into action by his former partner William Keys (DeVito). The two begin an investigation into the suspicious deaths of two luxury retirement home residents. A hidden world of sex, drugs and murder is quickly unraveled in the wealthy community, controlled by kingpin Harvey Stride (Pacino), and his femme fatale enforcer, The Spider (Mirren).
“I have always been a big fan of film noir but haven’t really made one,” Said Hackford. “The whole concept of setting a film in a upscale retirement community… these are proliferating all over the United States as the baby boomer generation gets to retirement. There’s a lot of money, and people want to live in a beautiful setting. Those are on the brochures, but what Tom Grey did was show what was lurking below the surface.”
“I thought it was a brilliant idea and he understood the nature of good noir – the dark story, the incredibly twisted characters – I thought he had a great handle.”
‘Sniff‘ hopes to release in late 2022.
