Patrick Dempsey Pictures From His Newest Film Project, "Freedom Writers"

by at . Comments

Special thanks to a reader of ours, Wilson, for sending us a link to some pictures and information about Patrick Dempsey's latest film.

Inspired by a true story and the diaries of real Long Beach teenagers after the L.A. riots, Freedom Writers tackles the worst outbreak of interracial gang warfare in recent history. Two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank stars as Erin Gruwell, whose passion to become a teacher is challenged by Black, Latino, and Asian gangs who hate her even more than each other. But when she listens to them in ways no adults ever have, Erin begins to understand what their lives are like - and what she wants her own to become.

Patrick plays Scott Casey, who appears to be a love interest and possible colleague of Hilary Swank. The film is written and directed by Richard LaGravenese and also stars Scott Glenn, Imelda Staunton and Mario. It opens January 12. At the very least, it offers some nice Patrick Dempsey pictures...
