The trailer has been released for Honest Thief, the latest action-thriller led by Liam Neeson.
Neeson plays Tom Carter, a career thief who’s stolen $9 million from banks over the years. Well, he’s now fallen in love with a woman (Kate Walsh) he intends to settle down with, but before doing so he wants to come clean about his past. Naturally, he decides to hand the cash in on the condition he get a reduced sentence. His plan goes down the drain when two corrupt cops (played by Aussie actor Jai Courtney and Anthony Ramos) decide they want the money and he gets framed for murder.
This looks like it should be a pretty safe choice if you’ve dug the smooth-voiced actor’s brand of action over the years. The film is directed and co-written by Ozark co-creator Mark Williams, making his sophomore feature as director following 2016 Gerard Butler drama A Family Man.
Honest Thief, also starring Jeffrey Donovan and Robert Patrick, will be hitting US cinemas on October 9th.
