Director talks about how his "cut" is finally coming to DVD, tapping into "the darker elements of your nature" and his next movie starring someone named Joaquin Phoenix.
THE YARDS is a drama set in the vast New York City subway yards. After serving time in prison for taking the fall for a group of his friends, Leo Handler (MARK WAHLBERG) just wants to get his life back on track. So, Leo returns to the one place he thinks will be safe -- home. There, he takes a new job with his highly connected and influential Uncle Frank (JAMES CAAN), and is reunited with his longtime friend, Willie Guitierrez (JOAQUIN PHOENIX) and Willie's girlfriend Erica (CHARLIZE THERON). But in the yards, where his uncle now pulls the strings, safe is not how they do business. Unwittingly, he's drawn into a world of sabotage, high stakes pay-offs and even murder, when he discovers secrets that make him the target of the most ruthless family in the city ... his own. Now, in the name of justice he'll have to do everything in his power to take them down.
