Tom & Huck All Grown Up in Zany Comedy 'Band of Robbers' Trailer
"After so many years of chasing a fairy tale, most people would be ready to give up…" Gravitas Ventures has debuted a trailer for Aaron & Adam Nee's Band of Robbers, a zany comedy about Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn all grown up, wreaking havoc and getting into all kinds of shenanigans after getting out of prison. Kyle Gallner stars as Huck Finn, and Adam Nee as Tom Sawyer, with a cast including Matthew Gray Gubler, Hannibal Buress, Melissa Benoist, Stephen Lang and Eric Christian Olsen. This actually looks quite good. Color me intrigued. An original idea with some amusing performances? I'm down.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Aaron & Adam Nee's Band of Robbers, found via SlashFilm:
Mark Twain's young heroes Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn spring vividly back to life, this time as modern-day grown men. When Huck is released from prison he hopes to leave his criminal past behind. But his lifelong friend and corrupt cop, Tom, has other plans, having formed the Band of Robbers, a group of misfits dedicated to locating the hidden treasure that eluded the boys in childhood. Band of Robbers is co-directed and co-written by brothers Aaron Nee and Adam Nee (aka The Brothers Nee), of The Last Romantic previously. The film premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival earlier this summer. Gravitas Ventures will release Band of Robbers in select theaters + on VOD starting January 15th, 2016 next year.
