Owen Wilson joins Jim Carrey in comedy heist film directed by Jared Hess
The formerly-titled LOOMIS FARGO has picked up Owen Wilson to join the comedy heist film. Wilson will join Jim Carrey who signed on last fall but since then further production on the film has been stalled. Jared Hell who directed NAPOLEON DYNAMITE and NACHO LIBRE will helm the film. Owen Wilson recently was seen in the comedy THE INTERNSHIP (click the link to read our review) to a less than stellar reception. (Deadline)
Inspired by true events, the formerly-titled LOOMIS FARGO tells the story of a disgruntled bank employee who is ready to take a chance and risk it all for love, money, and a life he’s only dreamed of. Teaming up with his work crush, they conspire to rob the financial institution. Together with their accomplices, the inexperienced criminals nab nearly $20 million – leaving a trail of evidence in their wake. Now the only thing tougher than pulling off the heist – will be getting away with it.
