Matt Dillon and Jean Reno Are In It?!
You like heist flicks? Good, glad to hear it. In that case, you may or may not dig Armored, a heist film with a cool middle-tier cast (Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Columbus Short, Laurence Fishburne,) an unproven director, Nimrod Antal (Vacancy), and a well-worn premise from first-time screenwriter, James V. Simpson.
It's about a group of armored truck drivers who decide to rob their own truck. Things go awry (a cop is shot), a good guy goes rogue (Columbus Short, who is pretty great if he ever gets a decent role), and Matt Dillon goes wickedly evil. Looks like a pretty decent Saturday afternoon flick. It opens in September.
Update: The studio decided to give the exclusive to Apple, so if you want to see it, click here (at least until it shows up on YouTube in the morning).
