Suspect Might Be Jared Leto

The first trailer and images from upcoming Oscar-bait thriller The Little Things starring Denzel Washington have now been released.

Filmmaker John Lee Hancock wrote and directed the psychological crime thriller, which stars Washington and Rami Malek as a pair of cops investigating a murder. Their prime suspect is played by Jared Leto.

Here’s the trailer –

The official blurb from Warner Bros. reads –

“Kern County Deputy Sheriff Joe “Deke” Deacon (Washington) is sent to Los Angeles for what should have been a quick evidence-gathering assignment. Instead, he becomes embroiled in the search for a killer who is terrorizing the city. Leading the hunt, L.A. Sheriff Department Sergeant Jim Baxter (Malek), impressed with Deke’s cop instincts, unofficially engages his help. But as they track the killer, Baxter is unaware that the investigation is dredging up echoes of Deke’s past, uncovering disturbing secrets that could threaten more than his case.”

The Little Things is a departure for Hancock, who most recently directed the Netflix period crime drama The Highwaymen and is more known for making more family-friendly features like Saving Mr. Banks and The Founder.

The film will be released on January 29th both in theaters and on HBO Max, although it’ll only be available on HBO Max for 30 days per Warner Bros.’ new 2021 strategy.
