A young man who was sentenced to seven years in prison for robbing a post office ends up spending three decades in solitary confinement. During this time, his own personality is supplanted by his alter-ego, Charles Bronson.
During the New York Comic Con in October 2013, the actor Steven Ogg who plays Trevor Phillips in GTA V, revealed that his inspirations to play the character were Tom Hardy in Bronson (2008) and Matthias Schoenaerts in Bullhead (2011). Both of those actors appeared together in The Drop.
All you need is a name.
Charles Bronson: What's wrong with Mickey Peterson.
Paul: You need a fighting name, like a movie star.
Charles Bronson: Charlton Heston.
Paul: Look, love. No one gives a toss about Charlton Heston. The man's a cunt. You're more of the Charles Bronson type.
When Charlie is dancing with the "loonies", "It's a Sin" by Pet Shop Boys is played out of the stereo. The song was not released until 1987.
