A comedy about an inept gang of criminals trying to steal $20 million just got a strong injection of comedic talent, as Jason Sudeikis has been added to a cast already featuring Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson, and Kristen Wiig. The premise of the movie is that said criminal group (led by Wilson) convinces a disgruntled armored truck driver (Galifianakis) and his love-interest/coworker (Wiig) to help them rob a bank. Sudeikis will play some sort of hitman, and the group are actually successful before things start to go terribly (and hilariously!) awry.
The movie is based on a true story, and is directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre). Lorne Michaels has signed on as a producer, and the Eastbound and Down team of Danny McBride and Jody Hill are serving as executive producers.
With all these big names attached, you’d think that everything with the movie would be well-put together and planned out. Not so. The movie doesn’t even have a title. It used to be called Loomis Fargo, but mercifully that one was scrapped.
They’ve got some time until the August 14, 2015 release date to figure it out.
