Netflix has delivered many heist movies and shows, including Army of Thieves, Money Heist, and Red Notice. The streaming giant is set to add another one to the list with the Kevin Hart-led Lift. The action-comedy comes from the writer of 12 Rounds, Daniel Kunka, and is directed by action-thriller mastermind F. Gary Gary.
Lift follows the story of Cyrus Whitaker, an international heist team leader who gathers a group of like-minded thieves to lift 500 million dollars in gold from a plane over 40,000 feet in the air. Cyrus and his team must complete the mission before the gold ends up in the wrong hands.
The cast is filled with highly recognizable faces while sprinkling in some new faces to get familiar with. Kevin Hart leads the cast, which includes Daredevil's Vincent D'Onofrio, Surface's Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Avatar's Sam Worthington. Get to know all of the cast members and characters!
