Brendan Fraser will star in the comedic heist film Whole Lotta Sola for director Terry George, reports Variety.
The trade says that the $5.5 million project “centers on a young man robbing a fish shop in order to pay off a gambling debt; the heist goes terribly — and humorously — awry when it turns into a hostage situation.”
Fraser is playing the shopkeeper, who’s on the run from his gangster father-in-law. Jay Russell is producing the movie, written by George and Thomas Gallagher. It will shoot in Northern Ireland.
