Now that Michael Pitt has left Boardwalk Empire behind, he has more time for the type of indie projects he’s always loved. With the American Film Market coming up, it’s been announced he’s attached to a movie called Rob The Mob, which will be looking for buyers at the event.
The film will see Pitt and Nina Arianda as a kind of modern-day Bonnie and Clyde who decide to lighten the pockets of some of New York City’s most notorious mobsters. While their plan is to knock over some criminal-run underground clubs, their heists lead them to something much bigger than they anticipated, inciting not just the mob but also the FBI and their own families to join the hunt to track them down.
Raymond De Felitta, who has directed movie like City Island and Café Society, will helm Rob The Mob, which has been written by Jonathan Fernandez. It isn’t clear when the movie might shoot. (Source: Deadline)
