Here’s the poster for Renny Harlin‘s slick looking heist thriller, The Misfits. The mighty Pierce Brosnan leads the cast of the film which also stars Jamie Chung, Tim Roth, Hermione Corfield, Rami Jaber, Mike Angelo and Nick Cannon.
Renny Harlin knows how to deliver great action (see Die Hard 2: Die Harder, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Deep Blue Sea) and Brosnan is great when he’s involved in a heist (see: Remington Steele, The Thomas Crown Affair and After The Sunset) – count Movies In Focus in for this one.
The Misfits hits US cinemas on 11 June 2021 and then to buy or rent on Digital on 15 June 2021.
Here’s the synopsis:
Even a federal maximum-security prison can’t hold Richard Pace (Golden Globe nominee PIERCE BROSNAN), a brilliant international thief. But his daring escape and high-octane car chase, eluding the FBI and police, ends with him being scooped up by The Misfits, a band of modern-day Robin Hoods. Led by the eccentric and charismatic Ringo (NICK CANNON) with Violet (JAMIE CHUNG), the Prince (RAMI JABER), and Wick (MIKE ANGELO) with Pace’s daughter Hope (HERMIONE CORFIELD)— a mysterious group who do devious things for all the right reasons. The skilled group convinces Pace to join them to pull off the heist of the century: stealing millions in gold bars kept under one of the most secure prisons on earth, owned by rogue businessman Schultz (Tim Roth), and used for funding terrorist groups worldwide. Aside from the money, Pace wants revenge against Schultz, the man behind his incarceration. From LA to Abu Dhabi, it will take supercharged engines, forged identities, multiple cons, camels, nitro and massive explosions to succeed. Directed by RENNY HARLIN (Die Hard 2: Die Harder, Cliffhanger), THE MISFITS brings a new team of outsiders into the world of action-adventure.
