“Old Man and The Gun,” starring Robert Redford, Danny Glover, Casey Affleck and Sissy Spacek, is set to be released on Oct. 5, according to Fox Searchlight.
The movie based on bank robber and escape artist Forrest “Woody” Tucker’s real life was filmed here last spring.
Redford plays Tucker in the film directed and written by David Lowery.
The story is based on the 2003 New Yorker article “The Old Man and the Gun” by Dan Grann.
In Dayton, cars seemingly plucked from the 1970s took over Second Street near Liberty Tower as part of a chase and several other scenes recorded starting May 1, 2017 for the film.
