McGregor and Mulligan Doing the Electric Slide


Ewan McGregor and Carey Mulligan are in talks to star in Myriad Pictures’ The Electric Slide, on which Tristan Patterson will make his directing debut.

Patterson’s screenplay is based on the article “The Yankee Bandit: The Life and Times of Eddie Dodson, World’s Great Bank Robber,” written by Timothy Ford for Gear magazine.

In the 1980s, Dodson (McGregor) robbed more than 72 banks in the Los Angeles area before the FBI nailed him. Christine Vachon, Brad Simpson, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Jocelyn Hayes are producing.
