Sidibe and Pena Aboard Tower Heist


Gabourey Sidibe and Michael Pena are joining Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy and Alan Alda in the Brett Ratner-directed Tower Heist at Universal Pictures.

The action comedy, which starts shooting in New York next month, centers on 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.

Tower Heist is scheduled for a November 4, 2011 release.
