Dimension Films, the genre movie division of The Weinstein Company, has picked up the U.S. distribution rights to director Jonathan Sobol's (Everything is Connected) latest movie, The Black Marks. The comedy, which will star Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon and Jay Baruchel, will go into production in Canada later this month. Nicholas Tabarrok, who produced Sobol's last movie, A Beginner's Guide to Endings, is producing for Darius Films, with Jeff Sackman (Sacrifice) executive producing.
Here's the synopsis of The Black Marks:
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.
