Robert De Niro and Morgan Freeman starring in a zany Hollywood comedy? That might’ve been a hot ticket once upon a time, but years of creaky De Niro comedies and Freeman’s recent allegations of sexual harassment have dimmed the prospect somewhat, even with Tommy Lee Jones in a supporting role as a cowboy with a death wish.
Still, The Comeback Trail’s got a fun premise—movie producers in debt to the mob try to score some quick insurance money by hiring the aforementioned death wish cowboy to star in (and, with their help, die on the set of) a sham movie. But Jones’ Duke Montana won’t die so easy, and that’s just the beginning of their problems.
Watch the trailer below.
The Comeback Trailer is due in theaters on November 13.
