Owen Wilson is picking himself up from a disappointing first weekend at the US box office for his comedy, The Internship, by signing up to star in Loomis Fargo (which may be in the process of changing its name), alongside Jim Carrey.
Deadline reports the news, but doesn’t say exactly who Wilson will play. Loosely based on a true story, it follows an armoured truck driver who is convinced to help participate in a $17 million robbery, but his partners are quick to turn on him once the job is done and leave him stranded in Mexico while they go off to live the high life. Then it’s time to settle the score.
The presumption is that Carrey is playing the driver, but it could be that role is going to Wilson. We’ll have to wait and see.
Jared Hess is directing from a script by Emily Spivey, Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer
