“One is found innocent until proven guilty.” ‘Honest Thief,’ directed by Mark Williams, is scheduled to premiere on 16th October 2020. Due to the pandemic and its resulting shutdown, the release of the film was delayed. Liam Neeson’s action thriller has been on hold for a long time, with the fans waiting excitedly for the film to release.
LIAM PLAYING TOM CARTER
With the desire to lead an honest and usual life, Tom Carter (played by Liam Neeson), a notorious aged thief, decides to turn himself into the FBI. As he moves forward to give up all his lifetime stolen money, he realizes that he’s getting double-crossed by two corrupt FBI agents. Ramon Hall (played by Anthony Ramos) and John Nivens (played by Jai Courtney) take advantage of Tom’s honesty and better judgment to benefit themselves.
PLOT OF HONEST THIEF
Honest Thief, as the name suggests, is the story of an ex-marine who later turned out to often rob banks with his expert skills and abilities. After spending almost half of his life hiding from everyone, Tom quits from the robbery business and surrenders. These qualities of Tom make him the ‘In-and-Out-Bandit’ in the movie.
The love interest of Tom in the film is Annie Sumpter (played by Kate Walsh). The desire to spend his whole life with Annie finalizes and convinces Carter to surrender. At the end of the Honest Thief trailer, released on July 30th, 2020, we also get to see Annie dying in the film. The death of Annie shocks and angers Tom, which results in a strong action in the end with hand-fighting and blazing guns.
A DIFFERENT ROLE PLAYED BY LIAM NEESON
The 68-year old Liam Neeson is often seen as a truthful and a strong action cop in thriller movies capturing serial killers, bandits, and notorious gangs. It will be a very different experience for the viewers to watch Liam playing a thief and a villainous side.
The supporting cast members of Honest Thief include Jeffrey Donovan (playing Tom Meyers), Robert Patrick (playing Sam Baker), and Jasmine Cephas Jones (playing Beth Hall). Mark and the screenplay writer Steve Allrich spent months bringing this cast together to lay out the film’s motive.
HONEST THIEF RELEASING OCTOBER 16TH, 2020
Honest Thief is one of the few movies that completed the filming just before the United States’ shutdown in January 2020. The film Honest Thief was first set to release on September 4th in theatres. Due to Covid-19, it was rescheduled to October 9th, 2020. Once again, due to the closing of many theatres in the United States, it was shifted to October 16th, 2020.
In June 2020, Open Road Films co-distributed the filming rights with Briarcliff Entertainment. With the help of Mark Williams, both the production companies have brought a rare action thriller to the theatres. It will be a fascinating and thrilling journey for us to watch this film.
