Robert Redford transforms into a bank robber with manners in the new trailer for The Old Man & The Gun. As Forrest Tucker, he’s a guy who escaped California’s San Quentin State Prison at the age of 70 and proceeded to confound authorities with a string of unique heists — unique in the sense that his victims all mentioned how polite he was.
“You know what I do when the door closes?” he says. “I jump out the window.”
David Lowery follows up Disney’s live-action Pete’s Dragon and acclaimed indie A Ghost Story with The Old Man & The Gun, based on a screenplay the director also wrote. Lowery was recently set to helm Disney’s live-action Peter Pan.
With a main cast rounded out by Danny Glover, Tom Waits, and Tika Sumpter, the film opens in theaters on Sep. 28. Watch the trailer above.
