Broken City is the first feature film that Allen Hughes has directed solo without his twin brother, Albert, in their two-decade filmmaking career. Since 1993’s classic “Menace II Society” (made when they were just 20 years old), the two have always co-directed their box office blockbusters, dividing directing duties on films such as Dead Presidents, From Hell, American Pimp, and The Book of Eli.
Allen’s noir crime thriller Broken City centers around Mark Wahlberg’s character, Billy Taggart – a former NY police officer turned detective. With a trail of unexpected turns, the director uncovers the criminal underbelly of New York City with his phenomenally talented cast. Allen, who is currently working on his latest solo project, New Regency gangster film Bittersweet Life, sat down with Vanity Fair to discuss Broken City.
