Owen Wilson, who appears in this past weekend’s The Internship, is set to star opposite Jim Carrey in the Relativity Media action comedy formerly titled Loomis Fargo, Deadline reports. The project, directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre), is based on an original screenplay by Emily Spivey (Up All Night) and written by Chris Bowman (The Wrong Brother) and Hubbel Palmer (Humble Pie).
Inspired by true events, Loomis Fargo tells the story of a disgruntled bank employee 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, 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 project will be produced by Lorne Michaels & John Goldwyn. Danny McBride, Jody Hill, Michael Aguilar and Kevin Messick will executive produce alongside Relativitys CEO, Ryan Kavanaugh and President, Tucker Tooley.
