Cop Land

Director James Mangold might be known more today for his big-budget fare like "Knight and Day" and his next film, "The Wolverine" with Hugh Jackman, but in 1997, he was just a few years out of film school and putting together his second feature film "Cop Land." The modern day western touted an impressive cast of Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta and Sylvester Stallone, who packed 40 pounds to play the half-deaf Sheriff Freddy Heflin.

A new Blu-ray edition of "Cop Land" arrived in stores just this week, and Mangold spoke with MTV News to look back on his second film more than a decade later.
