Owen Wilson Boards Jared Hess-Directed Heist Comedy

Will co-star with Jim Carrey

Owen Wilson, who will soon be on the big screen starring alongside Vince Vaughn in Shawn Levy’s ‘The Internship,’ has reportedly closed a deal to join Jim Carrey in Jared Hess’ upcoming heist comedy, formerly titled ‘Loomis Fargo.’

Featuring a script by Chris Bowman (‘The Wrong Brother’) and Hubbel Palmer (‘Humble Pie’), the fact-based film follows a night guard at an armoured car company in the Southern U.S. who, along with his cohorts, set out to pull off the biggest bank heists in American history.

Lorne Michaels and John Goldwyn are on board to produce via their Michaels-Goldwyn banner, with Danny McBride, Jody Hill, Michael Aguilar and Kevin Messick serving as executive producers.
