Pierce Brosnan and Nick Cannon are teaming up for a thrilling new adventure.

In a PEOPLE exclusive look at the first trailer for The Misfits, the duo star in an action-packed high-stakes game where Brosnan stars as Richard Pace, a brilliant international thief taken in by modern-day Robin Hoods calling themselves The Misfits, led by Cannon's Ringo.

The mysterious group convinces Pace to join them as they pull off the heist of a century: stealing millions in gold bars kept under one of the mose secure prisons on Earth that is used for funding terrorists groups around the world. The prison is owned by Pace's enemy, Schultz (Tim Roth).

"Steal their gold, stop the terrorists," Brosnan's Pace says. "Let's go to prison, shall we?"

As the group arrive in the Middle East to break into one of the prisons, Pace devises a way to get inside.

"The only way this is gonna run smoothly, is if the prison doesn't run smoothly," he says before the group infiltrates and wrecks havoc on the prison system.

Directed by Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2: Die Harder), the movie also stars Jamie Chung, Rami Jaber, Mike Angelo and Hermione Corfield.

This is Brosnan's latest film since last year's Netflix movie Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga.

The Misfits is in theaters June 11, and on digital and on demand June 15.
