The film is written and directed by Jonathan Sobol (A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO ENDINGS). The announcement was made today by Bob Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company.

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.
