Written and directed by Aaron and Adam Nee, “Band of Robbers” is putting a modern spin on Mark Twain’s most influential novels by turning Hunk Finn and Tom Sawyer into grownup, small-time crooks. The movie stars Kyle Gallner, Adam Nee, Matthew Gray Gubler, Hannibal Buress, Melissa Benoist and Stephen Lang.

The official synopsis reads: “When Huck Finn is released from prison, he hopes to leave his criminal life behind, but his lifelong friend, and corrupt cop, Tom Sawyer, has other plans. Not ready to give up on his childhood fantasies, Tom forms the Band of Robbers, recruiting their misfit friends, Joe Harper and Ben Rogers, to join them for an elaborate plan to find a fabled treasure. But the plan soon unravels, thrusting the guys on a wild journey with dangerous consequences.”

The film will be released in theaters on January 15, 2016. Check out the trailer above.
