Variety reports that Katie Holmes has joined Queen Latifah in Mad Money, to be directed by Thelma & Louise screenwriter Callie Khouri.
The Glenn Gers script, based on British film Hot Money, concerns three female employees of the Federal Reserve who plot to steal money that is about to be destroyed. Khouri did a rewrite on the script.
The third actress is not yet cast. The film will shoot in Shreveport, La.
Holmes, who is making her return to acting after maternity leave, has dropped out of The Dark Knight, Warner Bros.’ Christopher Nolan-directed sequel to Batman Begins.
