Adrien Brody and Jordana Brewster are the latest names to join the cast of the now-in-production action thriller American Heist, The Wrap reports. The former will also executive produce alongside star Hayden Christensen.
The film, a remake of 1959’s The Great St. Louis Bank Robbery (in turn inspired by an actual heist committed in 1953), features two brothers caught up in criminal plot.
Brody recent starred in InAPPropriate Comedy while Brewster was seen in this summer’s Fast & Furious 6.
Sarik Andreasyan is directing the project, which is now filming in New Orleans. Gevond Andreasyan, Tove Christensen (Hayden’s brother), Georgy Malkov and Vladimir Poliakov will produce through the newly-launched Glacier Films.
