Kurt Russell to play art thief

Kurt Russell and Matt Dillon will be starring in a heist comedy, according to reports.

The pair will play brothers looking to pull off another big con in the film The Black Marks.

Jonathan Sobol, known for The Beginners Guide To Endings, has written and will direct the movie.

The story centres on Crunch Calhoun, played by Kurt, a third rate motorcycle daredevil and semi-reformed art thief, who agrees to get back into the con game and pull off just one more theft with his untrustworthy brother Nicky, played by Matt.

Jay Baruchel also stars in the film, but it's not yet known what his role will be.

Kurt is set to star in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained and Matt is signed up for the Linda Lovelace biopic Inferno, while Canadian actor Jay next stars in The Apocalypse and Cosmopolis.
