Dempsey to Topline Untitled Bank-Heist Comedy


The Hollywood Reporter says that Patrick Dempsey (“Grey’s Anatomy”) will star in an untitled bank-heist comedy written by The Hangover team of Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.

Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin) will direct the film, to be produced by Dempsey, Peter Safran and Foresight Unlimited’s Mark Damon, with Joannie Burstein serving as an executive producer.

Dempsey is set to play a man caught in the middle of two different robberies at the same bank who tries to protect a bank teller with whom he’s secretly in love.

Production will begin in April.
