Netflix has released the official trailer for "The Ruthless," the new gritty mafia drama from Italian filmmaker Renato De Maria (Italian Gangsters, The Front Line).

Set in the 1980s during the glitzy period of Milan's dizzying economic boom, the crime drama stars Italian actor Riccardo Scamarcio (John Wick: Chapter 2) as Santo Russo, a working-class thief who rises up the ranks to become a powerful, wealthy gangster, only to be dragged down by the demands of his own insatiable ego.

Inspired by the Italian crime book "Manager Calibro 9" by Piero Colaprico and Luca Fazzo, and written by De Maria, along with Valentina Strada and Federico Gnesini, the film also stars Sara Serraiocco (Starz's Counterpart), Marie-Ange Casta, Valentine Payen, Alessio Pratico (FX's Trust), Fulvio Milani (Human Capital), and Alessandro Tedeschi.

"The Ruthless," also known internationally as "Lo spietato," will premiere on Netflix April 19th. Watch the trailer, above.
