Jonathan Sobol’s “The Black Marks” has filled out its cast. Joining Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon and Jay Baruchel are Terence Stamp, Chris Diamantopoulos, Kathryn Winnick and Kenneth Welsh. The Toronto-based production, which starts shooting next month, is being produced by Darius Films’ Nicholas Tabarrok and Jeff Sackman; Alliance Films’ Noah Segal is exec producing. Check out the synopsis and character details below:
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. Stamp will play an ex-art thief, Diamantopoulos, a master forger, Winnick as Crunchy’s dubiously loyal girlfriend, and Welsh, the elder statesman of the group of thieves.
