As for what that incredible cast will be doing in “The Outfit,” Moore and his co-writer Jonathan McClain have conjured a fascinating take on the gangster drama for one and all. Per a February 2021 Deadline report, “The Outfit” will find Rylance portraying Leonard, an English tailor once famed for crafting suits on London’s world-famous Savile Row. After enduring an intensely personal tragedy, Leonard makes his way to Chicago where he starts operating a small tailor shop in a rough part of town. It’s a far cry from his prior life, but after setting up shop, Leonard soon finds himself making beautiful clothes for the only people in his neighborhood who can afford them — a notorious family of vicious gangsters.
As of now, it’s unclear what sort of conflict Leonard might find himself entrenched in dealing with such ruffians. It’s also unclear who Rylance’s co-stars will be playing in “The Outfit.” But if Johnny Flynn is somehow not playing one of those vicious gangsters, we’re going to have a few questions for the film’s casting director. Ditto if O’Brien isn’t playing some morally conflicted member of the family unwillingly caught up in the gang-tinged madness. Whatever the case, it’s a safe bet they’ll all look great in the film, which is, apparently, about a gifted man who lives to ensure they do.
