Brothers and schemes involving money: has no one learned the lessons of A Simple Plan or Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead? These things never end well. Clearly Matt Dillon and Kurt Russell were unaware, as they're playing siblings hatching a scam in The Black Marks. And now actress Katheryn Winnick has decided to join the fun.
Jonathan Sobol is directing the indie crime comedy based on his script. The plot follows Crunch Calhoun (Russell), a low-rent motorcycle daredevil and partly reformed art thief who agrees to go back into the criminal life for, you guessed it, one last big score. His brother Nicky (Dillon) convinces him that it will solve all their problems and they rope in another schmuck (Jay Baruchel) to help out. But when it all goes surprisingly well, the heist leads to another, riskier plan that Nicky has dreamt up and the brothers find that they’re each working to their own agendas.
Winnick has signed on to play a Ukrainian showgirl who happens to be Crunch’s girlfriend and the majority of his support system. No doubt she’ll also get dragged into the crime… She was last seen in Love And Other Drugs and has recently shot A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III alongside Charlie Sheen.
