Based on the true story of Forrest Silva “Woody” Tucker, Robert Redford returns to the silver screen this weekend. And this time? He’s robbing banks in The Old Man and the Gun.
Let’s take a look at the trailer:
Alongside Sissy Spacek, Casey Affleck, and Danny Glover, Redford will be coming to theaters this fall portraying career criminal and escape artist, “Woody” Tucker. The tenacious conman, who spent the better part of his life in and out of jail, was first sent to prison when he was only 15 years-old.
More from IndieWire:
After delivering one of the best indies of 2017 with “A Ghost Story,” David Lowery is returning to the big screen this fall with “The Old Man and the Gun.” The film is notable for starring Robert Redford in his alleged last performance before retirement, and the official trailer below teases the legendary actor is going out on a high note.
“The Old Man and the Gun” stars Redford in the true story of Forrest Tucker, who escaped prison at age 70 and went on an unprecedented string of heists. Casey Affleck, who is a Lowery favorite after “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” and “A Ghosty Story,” plays the detective who becomes obsessed with Tucker. Sissy Spacek, who gets a ton of tender screen time in the trailer, plays the late love of Tucker’s life. The film marks the second collaboration between Lowery and Redford after Disney’s “Pete’s Dragon.”
“The Old Man and the Gun” is set to open in theaters September 28 per Fox Searchlight and we are looking forward to it.
So are we. It’s very rare that Redford disappoints. For entertainment fans, this Fall is definitely one to look forward to.
