After announcing Dimension’s acquisition of an upcoming heist film The Black Marks at the start of the year, we have an update on the cast. Directed by Jonathan Sobol (A Beginner’s Guide to Endings), the cast already includes Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon and Jay Baruchel, but now more have arrived.
Joining the cast will be Terence Stamp (last seen in The Adjustment Bureau) as an ex-art thief, Chris Diamantopoulos (who will play Moe in the upcoming The Three Stooges) as an export forger, Katheryn Winnick (Love and Other Drugs) as Russell’s girlfriend and Kenneth Welsh (The Aviator) as the oldest member of the thieves. Check out an extended synopsis below.
Crunch Calhoun (Russell), a third rate motorcycle daredevil and semi-reformed art thief, agrees to get back into the con game and pull off just one more lucrative art theft with his untrustworthy brother Nicky (Dillon). Crunch reassembles the old team and comes up with a plan to steal a priceless historical book, but the successful heist leads to another, far riskier, plan devised by Nicky. What the brothers don’t realize is they each have their own agenda and their plan goes awry in this con movie about brotherhood, honor and revenge.
Russell in a heist film sounds right up my alley and these recent additions, especially Stamp, are promising. Although Sobol’s last film came and went without much buzz, hopefully this one is a step above. Shooting has already begun for the film and we can likely expect it on the festival circuit by year’s end.
