Fox Searchlight has announced an October 5th release date and released the first photos from “A Ghost Story” director David Lowery’s “The Old Man and the Gun” which stars Robert Redford in his alleged final screen performance.
Redford stars in the true story of Forrest Tucker, who escaped prison at age 70 and went on an unprecedented string of heists. Casey Affleck plays the detective who becomes obsessed with Tucker. Sissy Spacek also stars.
The date suggests a Fall film festival debut at either Venice, Telluride, and/or TIFF. Searchlight had both “The Shape of Water” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” in Oscar contention earlier this year – the former winning Best Picture.
