Check This Out: Poster for Morgan Freeman's The Code
I'm almost certain no one reading this has ever heard of The Code. It's a heist movie about jewel thieves starring Morgan Freeman, Antonio Banderas, and Radha Mitchell. Thanks to Get The Big Picture, we've got our first look at the poster for the film. While it's titled The Code on the poster, it's also being called Thick as Thieves. In the film, Freeman plays a veteran thief who recruits a young crook to help him pull off one final job in order to repay his debt to the Russian mob. I really love the old school look of this poster, but as for the movie itself, that is yet to be seen. Either way, take a first look at this heist film below.
The Code aka Thick as Thieves is directed by veteran filmmaker Mimi Leder, of The Peacemaker, Deep Impact, and Pay It Forward previously. The screenplay was written by Ted Humphrey, who is making his feature debut after writing for "Shark" and "The Unit" on TV. The film is already finished and ready to go, but Millennium Films hasn't found the right time to debut it. Stay tuned for more on The Code in 2009!
