Michael Chiklis and Forest Whitaker reteam for Pawn

"The Shield" is an utterly amazing show, one of the best crime dramas on tv, but one of the greatest arcs had to be the one involving Forest Whitaker. He was the perfect foil for Michael Chiklis' character, and the more he tried to take him down the more desperate he got. They clashed beautifully on the small screen, and producers are hoping to bring that to the big one in the upcoming indie hostage drama PAWN.

Alongside this duo will be Common and Ray Liotta. This will be director David A. Armstrong's debut, as well as the debut for Chiklis' new production company Extravaganza Films. Jay Anthony White wrote the script, in which an ex-con becomes entangled in a manipulative chess game between the Feds, local police and the mob.

No word on who plays who! Chiklis and Whitaker butted heads like no others in "The Shield" but it sure would be interesting to see them on the same side.

Production on PAWN starts on December 1st.

Season 5 with Forest was the best of The Shield's 7 glorious seasons. Best show ever on tv with the best ending ever for a tv series. Yes, Shane Vandrell was one of tv's all time tragic heroes.

I would agree to an extent. I think the Vandrell character was manipulated constantly by Vic and therefore got himself into horrible situations because of or due to trying to impress Vic. I think the last few episodes with him and his family you really got too see the true compassionate side of Shane that had the utmost love for his family.

Alone this pairing wamts me to see this movie.

The Shield really was a show for the ages. Nothing will ever come close to the greatness and brilliance that was The Shield. Shane Vendrell was such an amazing character.
