Jason Sudeikis in Talks to Join Kristen Wiig, Owen Wilson & Zach Galifianakis in Upcoming Comedy for Relativity
Jason Sudeikis may soon be lining up another gig.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor is in talks to join Kristen Wiig, Owen Wilson, and Zach Galifianakis in Relativity's upcoming 'armored car' comedy, formerly titled LOOMIS FARGO.
The film, originally written by Emiley Spivey with recent drafts by Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer, will be directed by Jared Hess, and is "based on the true story of four dim-witted Southerners who pulled off one of the biggest heists in American history, robbing almost $20 million from a Loomis Fargo armored truck." Should his deal go through, Sudeikis would play a hitman.
Production is set to begin in July, with the film coming to theaters on August 14, 2015.
Sudeikis began his career in improv comedy. In 2003, he was hired as a sketch writer for Saturday Night Live and became a cast member from 2005 to 2013. He has appeared on television in 30 Rock, The Cleveland Show, Eastbound & Down, and other shows. He is also known for his roles in the films Hall Pass, Horrible Bosses, Epic and We're the Millers.
