What movie am I thinking of?

The opening scene takes place at Buffalo Bills in Primm Valley (on the outskirts of Las Vegas) and a man goes into the Casino owner's office and tells him he can't pay the Casino the money he owes. He comes in with a gun and everything. The owner isn't scared by the man's threats and he uses threats against him and the man eventually leaves.

I don't remember any actors, just that the men were between 40 and 60 years old and wearing suits.

Thanks a lot!

I have seen that scene, but I can't quite place it. Was it in Get Shorty?

No, im not sure but I think its a fairly recent movie. So annoying to have it right there in my head but just cant get to it!
The only reason I know they are at Buffalo Bills in the scene is that they pan to it and have a few seconds where you can see the roller coaster going, if that helps..

The Nevada Film Office lists recent films shot in NV here. Maybe scrolling through the list will jog your memory.

The name of the roller coast is the Desperado, if that helps you search. I tried to search but got tired of filtering out results for the movie "Desperado."

I haven't seen the film, just snippets but it sounds as if it could be No Country For Old Men?

Man, really a bummer to not get to the bottom of this!
I wish I had more info to better describe the scene

Do you remember anything about the actors in the scene?

Also, could this be a TV show?
