Dimension Films Picks Up Heist Comedy Starring Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon and Jay Baruchel

The cast of "The Black Marks"

Dimension Films has acquired U.S. rights to the "The Black Marks" from Darius Films, which begins production this month. The film, written and directed by Jonathan Sobol ("A Beginner's Guide to Endings") stars Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon and Jay Baruchel.

Here's the synopsis, per Dimension:

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. What the brothers don’t realize is they each have their own agenda and their plan goes awry in this con movie about brotherhood, honor and revenge.

Darius Films principal Nicholas Tabarrok is producing the film with Jeff Sackman as executive producer.
