Aiming to film in February 2013, "Old Man" is in pre-production. Ross M. Dinerstein is producing with Jamie Carmichael executive producing this violent revenge thriller about a mob hit man (Liotta) who is lured back into the underworld to seek revenge when his bosses frame him for a murder that he did not commit. 

Along the way, he bonds with the son he has lost touch with and starts a relationship with a call girl while he tracks down the men that got him locked up for 22 years.

“Old Man” is described as being in the vein of “Drive” and “Harry Brown.” Liotta’s previous credits include “Goodfellas” and “Killing Them Softly.”  Dinerstein and Carmichael have previously collaborated on a number of films, including “The Pact,” “Mr. Jones” and “The Divide.”
