Walken, Freeman, and Macy Team Up For The Maiden Heist

MaidenHeistIt’s hard to a fault a movie that features Christopher Walken, Morgan Freeman, and William H. Macy in key roles, even if it does look like yet another wacky heist movie featuring actors who are capable of better things. Peter Hewitt’s 2009 crime comedy “The Maiden Heist” certainly has potential, but after watching the trailer, I’m not entirely sold on the idea. I used to be able to trust Morgan Freeman, that is, until I properly investigated both “The Contract” and “The Code,” two films that are the very definition of mediocre. What’s more, it’s from the guy who directed that terrible live-action “Garfield” flick. Yikes. Perhaps “The Maiden Heist” suffers from a lackluster trailer, one that degrades the film’s overall quality. Then again, maybe not.

Here’s what it’s all about:

A comedy centered on three museum security guards who devise a plan to steal back the artworks to which they have become attached after they are transferred to another museum.

“The Maiden Heist” is currently scheduled for release on November 24th. Catch the trailer below.

    Saw this trailer before and *Sigh* I have to say…Sirs what has happened to you. Walken, I’ll let slide as he’s made questionable decisions before, but seriously Macy and Freeman? Wow. Someone write a good script for these guys quick.
