Relativity Media Acquires Jim Carrey Action Comedy LOOMIS FARGO

Relativity Media has acquired worldwide rights to finance, produce and distribute the action-comedy heist film currently titled Loomis Fargo, starring Jim Carrey, it was announced today by Relativity. The project, directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre), is based on an original screenplay by Emily Spivey (Up All Night) and written by Chris Bowman (The Wrong Brother) and Hubbel Palmer (Humble Pie). The film is targeted to start production in North Carolina this April.

Inspired by true events, Loomis Fargo tells the story of 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 project will be produced by Lorne Michaels & John Goldwyn. Danny McBride, Jody Hill, Michael Aguilar and Kevin Messick will executive produce alongside Relativity's CEO, Ryan Kavanaugh and President, Tucker Tooley.

Relativity's Brett Dahl will oversee the project for the studio.
