Joining Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson...
Kristen Wiig is set to co-star in Jared Hess' new heist action-comedy. THR reports that the Bridesmaids star is joining Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson in the film.
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.
There is no title yet for the project, but a August 14th, 2015 release date is set.
