The 68-year-old’s latest starring role is in a new action-thriller, Honest Thief. From Ozark co-creator and producer Mark Williams, the film also stars, Australian actor Jai Courtney.
So, what else do we know about Honest Thief? Here’s the full rundown.
Thrills and excitement are up for grabs in Honest Thief which tells the action-packed story of a career bank robber keen to turn himself in for the sake of love, only to be double-crossed by two ruthless FBI agents.
Tom (Neeson) is a lot of things, but two in particular: an infamous thief and a newfound romantic. His feelings for his new flame Annie (Kate Walsh) have inspired him to right his past wrongs and leave behind his life of crime.
Although he has always worked with integrity and precision, exclusively carrying out non-violent bank jobs, he does not want his relationship with Annie to be built upon lies. He resolves to turn himself into the FBI and forfeit the money he has stolen in return for a plea deal and a clean slate.
When he calls the Boston FBI field office to confess and set a meeting, Agents Baker (Robert Patrick) and Meyers (Jeffrey Donovan) laugh it off as a prank.
Walsh (The Umbrella Academy) plays new love Annie alongside Neeson with Courtney (Stateless) playing Agent Nivens, Robert Patrick (Perry Mason) as Agent Sam Baker, Jeffrey Donovan (Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile) as Agent Meyers and Anthony Ramos (A Star is Born) as Agent Hall.
Honest Thief is written and directed by Ozark co-creator Williams and is produced by Williams, Myles Nestel (Line of Duty), Tai Duncan (How it Ends), Craig Chapman (Line of Duty), and Jonah Loop (Becoming).
