Jim Carrey is said to be eyeing a leading role in Loomis Fargo, Variety reports. The film, based on the true story of one of the largest bank heists in history, will be directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre).

In 1997 David Scott Ghannt, the driver of a Loomis Fargo & Company armored car, formed a criminal team in Charlotte, North Carolina to steal $17.3 million. Although the robbery was initially successful, Ghannt and his co-conspirators were later tracked down and arrested.

The script, originally by Emily Spivey, has since been rewritten by Jody Hill and Danny McBride and, most recently, by Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer.

Carrey, who would play the Ghannt role, will next appear opposite Steve Carell and Olivia Wilde in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.
