The first trailer from the eagerly awaited Cincinnati-filmed "The Old Man and the Gun" has been released, and with it comes the announcement that Fox Searchlight Pictures will release the film on Sept. 28, the start of awards season. The film was shot in the city, including Price Hill, and nearby areas, including Dayton.
The film features Robert Redford in what he told IndieWire in 2016 would be his last film before retirement — as real-life bank robber Forrest Tucker, who escaped prison at age 70 and resumed his criminal ways. The film is based on a 2003 New Yorker article by David Grann.
Besides Redford, the cast includes an amazing number of well-known actors — Casey Affleck, Sissy Spacek, Elisabeth Moss, Danny Glover, Keith Carradine, Tom Waits and more.
Director David Lowery, who also wrote the screenplay, is coming off his critical favorite 2017 indie movie A Ghost Story, which also starred Affleck (as did his earlier (Ain't Them Bodies Saints) and has marked him as a director to watch. And Redford previously starred in Lower's Pete's Dragon.
