Kristen Wiig Joins Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson for Heist Comedy

May 16, 2014


Kristen Wiig has joined the cast of director Jared Hess' upcoming action comedy heist film, formerly titled Loomis Fargo. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the Bridesmaids star will star opposite Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson in the Relativity production.

Inspired by true events, the project tells the story of a disgruntled bank employee (Galifianakis) who is ready to take a chance and risk it all for love, money, and a life he's only dreamed of. Teaming up with his work crush (Wiig), they conspire to rob the financial institution. Together with their accomplices, the inexperienced criminals nab nearly $20 million - leaving a trail of evidence in their wake. Now the only thing tougher than pulling off the heist - will be getting away with it.

The film arrives from an original screenplay by Emily Spivey (Up All Night) and written by Chris Bowman (The Wrong Brother) and Hubbel Palmer (Humble Pie).

The project will be produced by Lorne Michaels & John Goldwyn. Danny McBride, Jody Hill, Michael Aguilar and Kevin Messick will executive produce alongside Relativity’s CEO, Ryan Kavanaugh and President, Tucker Tooley.

The untitled project is planned for release on August 14, 2015.
