For a while Owen Wilson and Jim Carrey had been planning to team up for Loomis Fargo, but now the film has lost its title and one of the stars, as Carrey has been forced out due to scheduling problems. However his replacement is already being lined up as TheWrap says Zach Galifianakis is close to signing on.
Loosely based on a true story, the movie follows an armoured truck driver (Galifianakis) 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.
Jared Hess is set to direct the action comedy, working from a script originated by Emily Spivey and more recently re-written by Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer. Hopefully it’ll also get a new title soon.
