Rourke Heading To St. Vincent

MICKEY ROURKE's successful big screen comeback is set to continue - the actor has landed the lead role in upcoming action thriller ST. VINCENT.Rourke has made a triumphant return to the acting world after years in the wilderness, following countless run-ins with police and hot-headed rows with movie executives. He sealed his comeback by securing a coveted Golden Globe award last month (Jan09) for his performance in The Wrestler.
And Rourke, who is also hotly tipped to win the Best Actor prize at the upcoming Academy Awards, has now reportedly been handed the starring role in St. Vincent, about an assassin who returns to New York to complete a botched hit.
Walter Hill will direct the film, which is slated to begin shooting later this year (09).
