Owen Wilson is joining Jim Carrey in his new heist comedy.

Jim is already signed up to play a disgruntled armoured car driver, who is persuaded to help steal 20 million dollars from the bank, but is then left seeking revenge when his cohorts double cross him and run off with the money while he is forced to hide in Mexico.

The film is based on real-life events and has been running under the title Loomis Fargo, but that is being changed according to Deadline.

The movie is being directed by Napoleon Dynamite's Jared Hess, from an original screenplay by Emily Spivey, and Danny McBride is among the executive producers.

Filming was due to begin in North Carolina in April but has been put back.
