Robert Redford is joining forces with Ain't Them Bodies Saints director David Lowery for The Old Man and the Gun. David Lowery is adapting the script from a 2003 New Yorker article about a lifelong bank robber named Forrest Tucker.
Born in the 1920s, Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford) spent almost his entire life robbing banks, doing time in jail, and escaping from jail. He had over 18 prison escapes to his credit, including breakouts from legendary penal facilities Alcatraz and San Quentin. The article, written by David Gann, focuses on a 78-year-old Forrest Tucker, living in a retirement community with his third wife, who still has the urge to knock over banks. He was caught after a high speed chase in 2000 and sentenced to 13 years in prison before his death in 2005.
David Lowery's script will focus on a certain period in Forrest Tucker's life, although no further details were given. Wolfgang Petersen was once attached to direct a different version of this story at one point.
