I’m not really sure who the audience for The Forger is at this point. This trailer is nice enough I guess, but it skirts the line between being a hard crime film and a family friendly affair so often that I’m wondering if either one of those audiences will be enticed to see the movie. John Travolta stars in the film as an ex-con, out on early release, who owes the crime syndicate who sprung him from jail one last job (it’s always that one last job that gets you). He decides to bring his ailing son (Tye Sheridan) and his father (Christopher Plummer) along for the ride.
Check out The Forger trailer below. The film also stars Abigail Spencer, Anson Mount, and Jennifer Ehle. It hits DirectTV on March 26th before going to limited theaters and VOD on April 24th.

Ray and his father, Joseph Cutter (Plummer), must come together to carry out one last big job for the syndicate who financed his early release.
