Den of Thieves is a shoot out!
DEN OF THIEVES is an edgy Los Angeles crime drama which follows the intersecting and often personally connected lives of an elite unit of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. and the state’s most successful bank robbery crew as the outlaws plan a seemingly impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank of downtown Los Angeles.
Set in contemporary Los Angeles, a city with the highest rate of bank robberies in the world, the film takes the traditional “cops and robbers” formula and gives it a high-octane boost, blurring the lines between good and evil to create a taut action thriller that is equal parts grand heist thriller and psychological crime drama.
The film explores the dynamic between GERARD BUTLER (Olympus Has Fallen, 300) and PABLO SCHREIBER (13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, Orange Is the New Black) as mortal enemies on opposite sides of the law headed toward an explosive showdown.
Butler portrays “Big” Nick O’Brien, the leader of the Regulators, an elite major crimes squad in the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department hunting the mastermind behind a string of unsolved heists.
Schreiber stars as Ray Merriman, the special forces-trained and recently paroled leader of the Outlaws, a gang of ex-military men whose subject matter expertise and tactical skills have helped them from being captured thus far. 2
The story of Den of Thieves is reflective of the world we live in. People are complex, the lines between good and bad are not as clearly delineated as we’d like to think, and often, the perceptions of wrong and right are not simply black and white, forcing us to operate in the grey areas as we navigate life’s challenges.
An elite crew of bank robbers plots to pull off the ultimate heist. Led by the
icy, preternaturally calm Ray Merriman (Pablo Schreiber), the Outlaws are not run-of-the-mill bank robbers; they operate with military precision, meticulous planning, and employ subject matter expertise — all skills acquired from military special ops service and prison stints. Merriman’s fellow Outlaws include disciplined family man Enson Levoux (CURTIS “50 CENT” JACKSON), and Bosco Ostroman (EVAN JONES), a battle-hardened veteran and gifted thief. They’re joined by their “driver” Donnie Wilson (O’SHEA JACKSON JR.), an ex-con bartender with a mysterious past, who may be out of his league.
