Jordana Brewster is preparing for the heist of her life…
The 33-year-old Brazilian-American actress has joined the cast of the action thriller American Heist, a remake of the 1959 Steve McQueen film St. Louis Bank Robbery.
The film, which will also star Hayden Christensen, Adrien Brody and Akon, tells the story of two brothers with checkered pasts — one struggling on the road to normalcy, the other just released from prison — who intertwine when one drags the other into an ill-fated bank robbery spearheaded by a gang of dangerous criminals, testing the loyalty of their sibling bond and how far they will go for greed and family.
Principal photography on the Glacier Films-produced project begins this week.
Sarik Andreasyan will direct the film.
