Robbing Nazis for Fun and Profit With Righteous Thieves
Everybody loves a good heist movie, and everyone loves to see Nazis get shit on. Well, director Anthony Nardolillo and first time writer Michael Corcoran have combined the two in Righteous Thieves. It takes the standard heist formula and adds a twist. The prize is four priceless paintings that were stolen by the Nazis during World War II and are currently in the hands of a rich Neo-Nazi.
Think of it as Ocean’s 11 crossed with Inglourious Basterds only with paintings rather than scalps, and without Tarantino’s constant
plagiarism homages. Lionsgate will release Righteous Thieves in theatres as well as to VOD and Digital platforms on March 10th. DVDs and Blu-rays will drop on April 18th.
In this ultimate heist thrill ride, Annabel (Lisa Vidal), a leader of a secret organization engaged in the recovery of priceless artwork, assembles a ragtag crew of art thieves to recover a Monet, Picasso, Degas, and Van Gogh stolen by Nazis during WWII and now in the possession of neo-Nazi billionaire oligarch Otto Huizen (Brian Cousins). As the planned heist approaches, loyalties are tested when the crew learns the real reason behind Annabel’s search for the long-lost paintings.
