As distinct as Martin Scorsese’s style is, his filmography reveals a comfort with genre that may surprise the casual fan. Disregarding the gangster pics for which he’s most well-known, Scorsese has traversed comedy, romance, horror, costume drama, documentary, and biopic without skipping a beat. But – and this is surprising considering his list of favorite movies – the one thing we haven’t seen Scorsese do is a western.
Fox Searchlight has debuted the first trailer for David Lowery’s upcoming crime drama The Old Man And The Gun starring Robert Redford as the true-life elderly career criminal and prison escape artist Forrest Tucker, who conducts a string of bank robberies well into his 70s. As he continues his stint as a gentleman robber, he meets and falls in love with Jewel (Sissy Spacek) and is hunted by Casey Affleck‘s Detective John Hunt.
