I think I already used this introduction in another article, but it is so true and somehow funny that I am going to mention it again. “Liam Neeson action movies” is already a film genre by itself. Which one to outstand from the rest? Well, hard to say, there are so many and most of them are quite enjoyable that I guess the most notorious ones are the Taken trilogy, Non-Stop (2014), and Unknown (2011). This time, he plays a notorious bank robber who turns himself in wanting to lead an honest life, but he gets double-crossed. So, this is Honest Thief (2020).
They call him the “In and Out Bandit” because meticulous thief Tom Carter (Liam Neeson) has stolen $9 million from small-town banks while managing to keep his identity a secret. But after he falls in love with the bubbly Annie (Kate Walsh), Tom decides to make a fresh start by coming clean about his criminal past, only to be double-crossed by two ruthless FBI agents.
Honest Thief (2020) has been directed by Mark Williams, and it is his second feature film after drama A Family Man (2016). He has also been co-writer of the screenplay together with Steve Allrich, writer of other action movies like The Timber (2015) and Bad Karma (2012).
Besides Liam Neeson, Honest Thief (2020) is also starred by Kate Walsh, Jai Courtney, Jeffrey Donovan, Anthony Ramos, Robert Patrick, and Jasmine Cephas Jones.
Filming for the movie began on November 5, 2018. In January 2020, Briarcliff Entertainment acquired distribution rights to the film, and in June 2020 it was announced Open Road Films would co-distribute it. Honest Thief (2020) is Rated PG-13 for strong violence, crude references, and brief strong language. It is scheduled to be released on October 9, 2020. Here you can watch the official trailer.
