Relativity Media nabs Jim Carrey’s “Loomis Fargo” heist comedy

PanARMENIAN.Net - Relativity Media has acquired worldwide rights to the Jim Carrey heist comedy “Loomis Fargo,” which it will finance, produce and distribute, TheWrap said.

Jared Hess, who co-wrote and directed “Napoleon Dynamite,” will direct the movie from a script by Emily Spivey that also counts Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer as writers. Inspired by true events, it tells the story of four Southerners who stole nearly $20 million from an armed Loomis Fargo truck in 1997.

“Saturday Night Live” creator Lorne Michaels and John Goldwyn are producing the movie while Danny McBride, Jody Hill, Michael Aguilar, Kevin Messick are executive producing with Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh and president Tucker Tooley.

Brett Dahl will oversee the project for Relativity, which is aiming for an April start to production.

Carrey can next be seen in "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," which will premiere at South by Southwest before it theatrical release. Relativity just acquired Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut "Don Jon's Addiction" at Sundance and will next release the romantic thriller "Save Haven."
