Dimension Films has picked up the U.S. distribution rights to the Canadian production The Black Marks. Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon and Jay Baruchel star in the heist comedy about “a third rate motorcycle daredevil (Russell) and semi-reformed art thief, [who] agrees to get back into the con game and pull off just one more lucrative art theft with his untrustworthy brother Nicky (Dillon).” I love a good heist film, and Russell as an oddball at the center sounds delightful.
Jonathan Sobol will write and direct—this is the follow-up to his debut feature A Beginner’s Guide to Endings. Nicholas Tabarrok and Jeff Sackman are producing. Hit the jump for the full synopsis:
