Brett Ratner’s upcoming TOWER HEST is really starting to shape up with some very interesting casting choices. It’s feels a lot like the B-team for OCEAN’S ELEVEN. The marketing department would be wise to play off that idea. Matthew Broderick, Casey Affleck (actually in OCENEAN’S ELEVEN) and Judd Hirsch are the newest stars to join the quickly growing cast that includes Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Alan Alda, Gabourey Sidibe, Tea Leoni and Michael Pena.
TOWER HEIST is about an overworked manager (Stiller) of an illustrious tower residence who leads a team of defrauded workers in a heist of its penthouse tenant, a Bernie Madoff-type Wall Street capitalist (Alda) who pulled a Ponzi scheme and swindled the staff. The film is set for a November 4, 2011 release.
