Going in Style
Oscar winners Morgan Freeman (â€œMillion Dollar Babyâ€), Michael Caine (â€œThe Cider House Rules,â€ â€œHannah and Her Sistersâ€) and Alan Arkin (â€œLittle Miss Sunshineâ€) team up as lifelong buddies Willie, Joe and Al, who decide to buck retirement and step off the straight-and-narrow for the first time in their lives when their pension fund becomes a corporate casualty, in director Zach Braffâ€™s comedy â€œGoing in Style.â€ Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three risk it all by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money. The film also stars two-time Oscar nominee Ann-Margret (â€œTommy,â€ â€œCarnal Knowledgeâ€) as Annie, a grocery cashier whoâ€™s been checking Al out in more ways than one and Joey King (â€œWish I Was Hereâ€), as Joeâ€™s whip-smart granddaughter, Brooklyn. John Ortiz (â€œSilver Linings Playbookâ€) stars as Jesus, a man of unspecified credentials who agrees to show the guys the ropes, and Peter Serafinowicz (â€œGuardians of the Galaxyâ€) as Joeâ€™s former son-in-law, Murphy, whose pot clinic connections may finally prove useful; with Oscar nominee Matt Dillon (â€œCrashâ€) as FBI Agent Hamer; and Christopher Lloyd (â€œBack to the Futureâ€ trilogy) as the guysâ€™ lodge buddy, Milton. Zach Braff (â€œGarden Stateâ€) directs from a screenplay by Theodore Melfi (â€œHidden Figures,â€ â€œSt. Vincentâ€). â€œGoing in Styleâ€ is produced by Donald De Line (â€œThe Italian Jobâ€). The executive producers are Toby Emmerich, Samuel J. Brown, Michael Disco, Andrew Haas, Jonathan McCoy, Tony Bill, who was a producer on the 1979 film â€œGoing in Style,â€ and Bruce Berman. The creative filmmaking team includes Emmy-nominated director of photography Rodney Charters (â€œ24â€); production designer Anne Ross (â€œLost in Translationâ€); editor Myron Kerstein (Braffâ€™s â€œGarden Stateâ€ and â€œWish I Was Hereâ€); costume designer Gary Jones (â€œNew Yearâ€™s Eveâ€); and composer Rob Simonsen (â€œFoxcatcher,â€ â€œWish I was Hereâ€). â€œGoing in Styleâ€ is scheduled for release on April 7, 2017.
