The Fugitive is back with a modern twist. Though the trailer for Quibi’s upcoming series looks like a present-day reboot of the Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones movie (and the 1960s TV series that inspired it), stars Boyd Holbrook and Kiefer Sutherland will play all-new characters engaged in a similar game of cat-and-mouse… with a 21st century twist.
Holbrook plays Mike, a father and husband suspected of bombing the Los Angeles subway system who then has to fight for his life, family, and innocence while evading capture by Detective Clay Bryce (Sutherland).
But the real villain in Quibi’s adaptation might be more nefarious: Social media. A Dec. 2019 report from Deadline suggests that the chase at the heart of the show is fueled by social media misinformation and sloppy reporting.
The Fugitive runs onto Quibi in April.
