Brendan Fraser joins Terry George’s ‘Whole Lotta Sole.’

Variety reports that Brendan Fraser has signed on to star in comedic heist film ‘Whole Lotta Sole.’

Set in Northern Ireland, the movie will be directed by Terry George (‘Reservation Road,’ ‘Hotel Rwanda’) with Jay Russell (‘Ladder 49,’ ‘The Water Horse’) producing.

The script, written by George and Thomas Gallagher centers on a young man robbing a fish shop in order to pay off a gambling debt; the heist goes terribly – and humorously – awry when it turns into a hostage situation. Fraser will portray the shopkeeper, who’s on the run from his gangster father-in-law.
