Honesty can get you far in this world, even for bank robbers like Liam Neeson. Tonight we get a look at Neeson’s upcoming film the Honest Thief which Signature Entertainment have released the UK Trailer.
Like many films this year, delayed all thanks to Covid-19, later this month the film will get a UK cinema release. Directed by Ozark co-creator Mark Williams which sees the veteran Irish actor back in the action genre.
Neeson plays a career bank robber who decides to hand himself into the police. Only to be double crossed by a couple of dirty cops that force him to go on the run to save his life.
You know the score when it comes to Liam Neeson in action thrillers. After years of saving his daughter time to save himself!
Thrills and excitement are up for grabs in HONEST THIEF which tells the action-packed story of a career bank robber keen to turn himself in for the sake of love, only to be double-crossed by two ruthless FBI agents. Tom (Liam Neeson, Taken) is a lot of things, but two in particular: an infamous thief and a newfound romantic. His feelings for his new flame Annie (Kate Walsh, Greys Anatomy) have inspired him to right his past wrongs and leave behind his life of crime. Although he has always worked with integrity and precision, exclusively carrying out non-violent bank jobs, he does not want his relationship with Annie to be built upon lies. He resolves to turn himself in to the FBI and forfeit the money he has stolen in return for a plea deal and a clean slate.
When he calls the Boston FBI field office to confess and set a meeting, Agents Baker (Robert Patrick, Terminator 2: Judgment Day) and Meyers (Jeffrey Donovan, Burn Notice) laugh it off as a prank. They send their subordinates, Agents Nivens (Jai Courtney, Suicide Squad) and Hall (Anthony Ramos, Trolls World Tour), instead. The two younger agents are shocked to discover that Tom is the real deal and see Tom’s stolen money as their golden ticket to a better life. And so begins a cat-and-mouse game where good and bad become tangled but love always rings true.
Written and directed by Mark Williams, co-creator and producer of the Netflix series Ozark and director of The Accountant. With director of photography Shelly Johnson (Captain America: The First Avenger) and film editor Michael P. Shawver (Black Panther).
Honest Thief is heading to UK and Irish cinemas (including some IMAX) from 23rd October.
