'Middle Men' includes scenes shot in Vegas


Movie: "Middle Men"

When: Opening Friday at Sam's Town, Suncoast

Cast: Luke Wilson, Giovanni Ribisi, James Caan, Gabriel Macht

Director: George Gallo

The story: Internet pioneer Jack Harris wrestles with his morals when the Web-based pornography business takes off, threatening to drown him in a sea of con men, mobsters, drug addicts and porn stars.

The buzz: "Midnight Run" screenwriter Gallo returned to Las Vegas in late 2008 as writer and director of this fact-based tale, which filmed at locations ranging from the Las Vegas Country Club's golf course to a Hard Rock Hotel penthouse suite. Producer Chris Mallick's experiences as a straight-arrow businessman whose company begins processing credit card payments for the fledgling online porn industry inspired the project. Wilson plays the businessman.
