Somewhere between Escape Plan and Ocean's Eleven lies The Misfits. A ragtag – but well-funded – group of thieves has to break into a secure prison, then a vault underneath the prison, and snatch a lot of gold. But this group can feel especially good about their ill-gotten gains, because the man they're robbing (Tim Roth) funds terrorists.
Pierce Brosnan brings his undeniable charm to the lead role as Richard, a suave thief whose prison break has picked up the attention of the Misfits. They view themselves as modern day Robin Hoods. Their ranks include Ringo (Nick Cannon), Violet (Jamie Chung), the Prince (Rami Jaber), Wick (Mike D'Angelo) and Richard's daughter Hope (Hermione Corfield). What separates this from the regular DTV dreck is its director. Renny Harlin made a lot of solid action movies in the '90s, including Cliffhanger and The Long Kiss Goodnight. But a string of massive flops sent him overseas, and his last several films have all been shot in China. It's unlikely he'll ever return to Hollywood, but this looks more like the kind of films he used to excel at.
The Misfits will be released on June 11. A VOD and digital release follows a few days later on June 15.
