Kate Walsh, Jeffrey Donovan, Jai Courtney and Anthony Ramos also star in the film from ‘Ozark’ co-creator Mark Williams.
Liam Neeson was given a laundry list of criminal discretions but that will not stop him from trying to get a second chance at life and love in the trailer for his latest film, Honest thief.
Neeson stars in the upcoming action thriller as former Marine and Demolition expert Tom Carter, nicknamed “In and Out Bandit.”
“I have robbed 12 banks in seven states,” said Neeson’s Tom Carter. “I have a little over $ 9 million in cash – and no one knows who I am.”
Despite the thriving business and growing savings, Tom is ready to leave his criminal life and start anew with the woman he loves, Annie (Kate Walsh). But when the careful criminal agrees to turn around and turn the money in exchange for a reduced sentence, it quickly becomes clear that his plan to start on the right foot with Annie will cost.
When Anthony Ramos’ special agent Hall and Jai Courtney’s special agent Nivens arrive to let Tom turn in, the two FBI officers decide to cross the agency and take millions for themselves. In the process, they hit Tom for the murder of their superior. Now a criminally transformed honest man must win in a fight against two men with his full strength behind him.
“If these two crooked cops are willing to kill another agent, what can they do for you and me?” Tom asks Annie.
Shortly after that Honest thief the trailer suggests what they can do when Tom carries Annie’s body through an ER hall. It is the match that ignites Tom’s fire and moves him from a defensive to an offensive front as he fights for love and freedom. It is a comprehensive battle complete with shootouts, explosions, car chases and one of Neeson’s classically concise yet ominous threats.
“My girlfriend, she had nothing to do with this,” Neeson says while on the phone. “Agent Nivens, I’m coming for you.”
Neeson’s latest film serves as a relaunch for Open Road, which fell due to Chapter 11 going bankrupt before Raven Capital Management acquired the US distributor’s assets in 2018. Honest thief is the Raven Capital – owned company’s first edition in the theatrical space.
Written and directed by Mark Williams, Honest thief also stars Jeffrey Donovan and Robert Patrick and is scheduled to hit theaters Oct. 9.
