Studio taking on Loomis Fargo...
Relativity Media has announced that it has acquired the worldwide distribution rights to Jim Carrey's new action-comedy heist film titled Loomis Fargo. The film is directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre) from a script by Chris Bowman (The Wrong Brother) and Hubbel Palmer (Humble Pie).
Loomis Fargo is based on real events and is about 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 film starts production in North Carolina this April.
