REAL McCOY, THE
A diamond-hard heist thriller in the tradition of Entrapment and The Score, The Real McCoy explores the travails of reformed cat burglar Karen McCoy (Academy Award® winner Kim Basinger, L.A Confidential), blackmailed into carrying out one final job.
When ex-con Karen McCoy attempts to turn her life around she finds she has very little leverage. With a son who believes she is dead, bullied by her parole officer and with no real job prospects, Karen is forced into a corner by ruthless crime boss Jack Lord (Terence Stamp, Wanted) who blackmails her into a seemingly impossible $18 million bank job.
Aided by well-meaning yet inexperienced crook J.T Barker (Val Kilmer, HEAT) Karen is tasked with one of the most dangerous assignments of her career, which will require not only perfect planning but every ounce of ingenuity, technical wizardry and above all nerves of steel to execute.
From the producers of Scarface and Carlito's Way, skillfully directed by Russell Mulcahy (Highlander, The Shadow), The Real McCoy is a slick crime caper based on Desmond Lowden's cracking novel Bellman & True.
