Cold Deck Coming In December

Cold Deck Coming In December

Thursday, 19 November 2015

The recent release of Mississippi Grind showed that there is still life in the gambling movie genre and now another new poker-themed film entitled Cold Deck is set to premiere next month.

The movie tells the story of ‘Bobby’, a role played by actor Stefano Gallo, who is stuck in a menial job as he attempts to pay off his mother’s medical bills. By way of escape, he enjoys the odd game of poker and decides to stage a heist after being invited to a secret high-stakes game.

Needless to say, things don't go quite to plan and Cold Deck features angry mobsters, serious weaponry and, as is usually the case in most poker-themed movies, some really poorly played hands.

Eagle-eyed viewers will recognise familiar faces in the likes of American actor Paul Sorvino, who played ‘Paul Cicero’ in the classic mobster movie Goodfellas, while the television credits of Robert Knepper include Heroes, Hawaii Five-O and, most famously, Prison Break.
