Bandit is an upcoming crime thriller that is being distributed by Quiver Distribution. The film is based on the true story of The Flying Bandit, a thief who was able to rob 59 banks without being caught. Quiver Distribution has published the official trailer for the film. On September 23, the movie will make its debut in theaters as well as on video-on-demand platforms.
This video demonstrates the various bank robberies that the protagonist, played by Josh Duhamel, will be able to commit while evading capture by the authorities. In addition, it hints at his working relationship with Mel Gibson’s character in the role of a loan shark, as well as his connection to a social worker.
The plot summary states that in the year 1985, Gilbert Galvan Jr., a charming career criminal, breaks out of a jail in the state of Michigan in the United States and then crosses the border into Canada, where he assumes the name of Robert Whiteman. After falling in love with Andrea, a kind social worker whom he is unable to provide for, he turns to robbing banks and realizes that he is very excellent at it.
When Robert starts robbing many locations in a single day while pretending to be a security analyst and flying around the country, he ultimately gets the attention of national news channels, who started referring to him as “The Flying Bandit.” Robert finally seeks the assistance of loanshark and notorious criminal Tommy Kay in order to expand his prospects.
Robert is addicted to the excitement and the money that his double life provides for him. But when Robert’s renown skyrockets in an unprecedented amount of time, he finds himself directly in the crosshairs of a merciless investigator who will do all it takes to bring him to justice.
Allan Ungar is in charge of directing Bandit, and Kraig Wenman is the one who wrote the screenplay. Elisha Cuthbert and Nestor Carbonell have also joined the cast, in addition to Duhamel and Gibson.
