7 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Paul Thomas Anderson has only directed six feature films, however they are six very impressive movies. His outstanding track record is sure to continue (or at least I'm hopeful it will) with his upcoming Inherent Vice starring Joaquin Phoenix, Owen Wilson and Reese Witherspoon, but until the Thomas Pynchon adaptation hits theaters this winter, we're going to have to make do with this fantastic tribute to the movies directed by Paul Thomas Anderson.

'Robot Chicken' Team to Direct Stop-Motion Adventure 'Superbago'

21 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures Animation is teaming up with Robot Chicken producers/animators John Harvatine and Eric Towner for the stop motion animated project Superbago.

John Harvatine IV and Eric Towner are set to direct this tale centering on a pair of superhero wannabes. While Sony Pictures Animation is best known for family-friendly fare such as The Smurfs, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Hotel Transylvania, this project will cater to a different audience.

Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) is producing alongside Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Eric Robinson. Jared Hess is also co-writing the script alongside Ricky Blitt, Hubbel Palmer and Chris Bowman.

Here's what Michelle Raimo Kouyate, Sony Pictures Animation's production president, had to say about Superbago.

"Superbago is a unique new project for Sony Pictures Animation. I love that our studio has the luxury of not being tied down to one specific type of movie. Superbago will skew older than »

Sony Pictures Animation is developing a stop-motion “Superbago” movie with “Robot Chicken” exec producers/animators John Harvatine and Eric Towner directing.

“‘Superbago’ is a unique new project for Sony Pictures Animation,” Michelle Raimo Kouyate, president of production, told Variety. “I love that our studio has the luxury of not being tied down to one specific type of movie.”

We all from time to time enjoy a comfortable stay when vacationing anywhere in the world. So why should movie characters not appreciate a great place to stay as well?

Jared Hess Heist Comedy Adds Kate McKinnon and Ken Marino

30 June 2014 11:04 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The awesome cast of Jared Hess's untitled heist comedy — previously titled Loomis Fargo — just got awesome-er. Relativity announced today that SNL's Kate McKinnon and Happy Endings and Veronica Mars actor Ken Marino will be joining a cast already stacked with comedic heavy hitters: Zach Galifianakis plays an armored car driver who is convinced to rob a bank by Steve (Owen Wilson) and a bunch of bumbling criminals (Kristen Wiig stars as one of the thieves, and Jason Sudeikis plays a hit man). Marino will play Doug Jeffcoat, Steve's wealthy, uptight neighbor, and McKinnon will play Galifianakis's fiancé. Meanwhile, SNL writer Leslie Jones, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Mary Elizabeth Ellis (a.k.a. "The Waitress"), Nebraska's Devin Ratray, and comic Ross Kimball have also signed on, as a detective, Steve's wife, and Steve's duo of henchmen, respectively. Are you getting all this down? »

Following news last week that Jason Sudeikis would reunite with Kristen Wiig for the big screen heist comedy formerly known as Loomis Fargo, even more cast members have signed up for the film led by Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis. The film from Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess is still being called the Untitled Armored Car Project, and the supporting cast has just filled out with some more great comedy names. Recent breakout "Saturday Night Live" cast member Kate McKinnon is taking a role along with "The State" member and frequent David Wain collaborator Ken Marino. But that is not all. First of all, as a recap, the story follows David (Galifianakis), a disgruntled armored car driver who teams up with his co-worker Kelly (Wiig) on whom he has a crush and a crew of makeshift criminals to pull off a $20 million heist. But Steve and Kelly double-cross David, and »

Formerly known as Loomis Fargo, the currently untitled heist comedy from Napoleon Dynamite's Jared Hess is continuing to fill its cast. To join the already aboard Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig and Jason Sudeikis, Hess has now also nabbed Kate McKinnon, Ken Marino, Leslie Jones, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, Devin Ratray and Ross Kimball.Inspired by true events in 1997, the story involves armoured car driver David, who channels his disaffection with the job into a plan to liberate $20m from a bank vault. Sadly for him, there's a glaring trail of evidence, while his cohorts double-cross him and proceed to live it up on the robbery's proceeds while he's left alone on the run in Mexico. Not unnaturally, our hero's next plan is to get even.Galifianakis (in a role originally earmarked for Jim Carrey) is David, with Wilson and Wiig as his shonky accomplices Steve and Kelly, and Sudeikis as a hit man. »

Jason Sudeikis in Talks to Join Heist Comedy with Galifianakis, WIlson, and Wiig

26 June 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Jason Sudeikis is in talks to join Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson, and Kristen Wiig in a heist comedy to be directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite). Sudeikis has worked with all three of the other stars before, appearing with Wilson in Hall Pass and Galifianakis in The Campaign. He worked with Wiig for several years on SNL and was visibly emotional when she bid her farewell to the show. The project, which used to be called Loomis Fargo, is based on an original screenplay by Emily Spivey, but a new script was written by Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer. There is no title at the moment. 

The script is based on the true story of a disgruntled armored car driver who stole nearly $20 million from his company’s vault. When his comrades double-cross him, he is left alone and on the run, and his thoughts turn toward revenge.

Jason Sudeikis Joins Untitled Heist Comedy With Zach Galifianakis And Kristen Wiig

26 June 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The best kind of career is the one where you can be funny and relaxed amidst a group of other funny actors with no pressure necessary. The expectations on Jason Sudeikis are that he become one of this generation's comedic leading men, but it seems like he's absolutely chill with having this sort of comedic character actor career where he can enter a movie with a sensible shirt, crack some jokes, then cede the spotlight to others. And with his next project, Sudeikis is not straying far from that formula. The Wrap reports that Sudeikis has joined the untitled heist comedy that is set to star Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson (Hall Pass reunion!). Galifianakis plays an armored truck driver who plots with a team of associates to rob his company of millions. When his partners double cross him and leave him stranded in Mexico, however, he must »

Jason Sudeikis In The Crosshairs For ‘Loomis Fargo’

26 June 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s the night of the tough-to-type surnames as comedy star Jason Sudeikis is to appear alongside his Campaign compadre Zach Galafianakis and Kristen Wiig in a crime drama formerly known as Loomis Fargo, currently untitled. I would have thought this is being changed due to parallels with Fargo and it isn’t clear if it’s a place or the main character’s handle. Either way, the “true” story follows an amateur heister who is betrayed by his fellows before plotting vengeance from Mexico. The actor will play an assassin, presumably a highly affable one based on his turn in Horrible Bosses (the sequel to which, inexplicably, is on the way).

Just as Wiig has been showing her serious side in The Skeleton Twins, so We’Re The Millers lead Sudeikis is getting a chance to broaden his horizons and by the looks of things director Jared Hess is »

Jason Sudeikis Heading For Heist Comedy Loomis Fargo

26 June 2014 3:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sometimes – even in Hollywood – fact is funnier than fiction. Thankfully, in the hands of talented filmmakers, such realities give rise to projects like Loomis Fargo (though the name may change) – which then attract incredible casts. With Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) at the helm, this Relativity Media production boasts a script by Emily Spivey, Danny McBride, Jody Hill, Hubbel Palmer and Chris Bowman, and is based on a very real heist story.

The tale centres on a reserved man named David, who ekes out his existence driving an armoured truck full of cash every day. He engages in flirtatious banter with the object of his affection – colleague Kelly – and bides his time. Life is quiet and uneventful, until Kelly lures him into a heist scheme that would bag them $20 million. Doing the job, he finds the group hanging him out to dry – so David is soon on the run, and out for revenge. »

Jason Sudeikis Joins Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, and Owen Wilson Heist Comedy

25 June 2014 11:01 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Well this sounds pretty great: Jason Sudeikis is in talks to join Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig, and Zach Galifianakis in an untitled heist comedy from Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess and producer Lorne Michaels. The film, formerly titled Loomis Fargo, is based on the true story of a 1997 North Carolina armored car heist. Galifianakis will star as an armored car driver who gets persuaded by a gang of dim-witted criminals to steal almost $20 million from a bank vault, with Wilson as the leader of the gang, Wiig as Galifianakis's love interest, and Sudeikis as a hit man. No word yet on a new title, but we're optimistic that whatever they come up with can't possibly be less catchy than Loomis Fargo. »
