Legendary serious actor and husband of Angela Bassett, Courtney B. Vance, stars in the upcoming film Heist 88, coming to Showtime and Paramount+ this fall!
Heist 88 is a crime thriller based on a true story, in which Vance, 63, plays Jeremy Horne, a “criminal mastermind with an innate ability to convince anyone to do just about anything, who decides to pull one last job before going to prison,” according to PEOPLE.
In Heist 88, Horne “recruits four young bank employees to steal close to $80 million in a daring and brazen assault on the U.S. banking system.”
The film takes place in 1988 Chicago, a time “before widespread computerization and the vast cybersecurity of today,” notes the synopsis.
The heart-pounding trailer opens with Horne giving his new recruits a rundown of the plan inside an airport, including orders to “board separately” and “don’t speak to each other.”
Soon after, authorities are seen hustling toward Horne and one of his recruits as they stand near a pay phone.
