Cooper Hoffman (‘Licorice Pizza’) and David Harbour will star in the new film ‘The Trashers,’ with Cooper Raiff (‘Cha Cha Real Smooth’) directing and revising a script written by Adam Perlman (‘The The Good Wife’) wrote the script.
Based on a true story, Harbour plays Jimmy Galante, a Connecticut waste mogul and associate of the Genoa crime family.
In 2004, Galante bought the city’s minor league hockey team and put his teenage son AJ in charge of running it. The two men developed a strong father-son bond through their love of the game, and the wisecracking father was reluctant to give it up.
Well run by Son, a team notorious for its rude and violent style of play, but also developing a wide fan base as they won more and more games.
And the team’s success and reputation has since come to an abrupt end with Galante’s arrest on 72 charges of defrauding the United Hockey League and bypassing the hard salary cap by putting players and their wives in faceless jobs through waste disposal operations.
