We’ve got our hands on a first official teaser poster of Severance, an upcoming crime thriller movie directed by Asger Leth (who helmed Man On A Ledge) based on a script by Bob Edwards and Brad Mirman:
For them it’s the job, nothing else.
“Frank McCallister is good at what he does; he’s a successful thief, a bit of a loner, but he knows how to build a good team to achieve his goals. Right now he’s in Berlin, once again pulling together his A Team and one by one they arrive from different corners of the world; Nico, Matthias, Gareth and Doyle, Frank’s longtime lieutenant, straight from his comfortable life in Miami, a life that Frank has just royally screwed up for him. Finally there’s Graham, the logistics guy. A Brit living in Berlin with his wife Katja and their daughter Anna. Katja and Frank don’t see eye to eye…they have history and she couldn’t be more clear in showing her contempt.
As the crew settle into their new digs, Frank unveils his plan; their target is €150m of laundered money, currently sitting in black market banker Klaus Schroeder’s underground vault, deep below the River Spree. On hearing his target, the team think Frank has lost it and so he explains exactly how they will do it…this magnificent heist….and perhaps his swan-song…
The plan appears to work like clockwork but Frank soon realizes that they have been double crossed by his supposedly loyal insider. As the team retreat to a safe house, one of the team is captured by Schroder’s heavies and tortured until he finally gives up the team’s whereabouts…and it is here that they kidnap their powerful bargaining tool, Anna.
Frank and the team gear up to rescue the kid – nothing is going to stand in their way. It’s a massive battle but the team are hardened professionals and make every shot count…right until the bitter, bloody end.”
Robbing a thief may not be ethical, but it sure sounds fair! So let’s hope Frank and his crew will manage to both save the young girl and get that scumbag’s money!
The film has yet to get an official release date.
