For couple of years a heist comedy – initially titled Loomis Fargo – has been doing the round. Now it doesn’t have a name but its cast is coming together, with Kristen Wiig joining Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis in the movie, according to THR.
The movie is loosely based on a true story about an armoured truck driver (Galifianakis) who is convinced to help participate in a $17 million robbery. However 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.
