MANILA, Philippines – Production is now underway on location in New York City on the New Line Cinema comedy “Going in Style.”

It'll be directed by Zach Braff and starring Oscar winners Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin.

Freeman, Caine and Arkin team up as lifelong buddies Willie, Joe and Al, who decide to buck retirement and step off the straight-and-narrow for the first time in their lives when their pension fund becomes a corporate casualty.

Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three risk it all by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money.

The film also stars two-time Oscar nominee Ann-Margret as Annie, a grocery cashier who’s been checking Al out in more ways than one, and Peter Serafinowicz as Joe’s former son-in-law, Murphy, whose pot clinic connections may finally prove useful.

There's also John Ortiz as Jesus, a man of unspecified credentials who agrees to show them the ropes; Joey King as Joe’s whip-smart granddaughter, Brooklyn; Christopher Lloyd as the guys’ lodge buddy, Milton; and Oscar nominee Matt Dillon as FBI Agent Hamer.

Braff will direct from a screenplay by Theodore Melfi, based on the film by Martin Brest.

“Going in Style” is being produced by Donald De Line. The executive producers are Tony Bill, who was a producer on the 1979 film “Going in Style,” Jonathan McCoy, and Andrew Haas.

The creative filmmaking team includes Emmy-nominated director of photography Rodney Charters, production designer Anne Ross and costume designer Gary Jones.

Opening across the Philippines on June 01, 2016, “Going in Style will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
