#TIFF13: “THE ART OF THE STEAL”
Everyone loves a good Heist Flick! And one that was filmed here in Toronto? Double bonus! Originally titled, The Black Marks, The Art of the Steal will see its Premiere at TIFF ’13 in the latter part of the Festival and we’re super stoked about it! We went all the way to Hamilton and got to meet some of the Cast Members early 2012. Read about our day in the snow here. Ever since then, we’ve been obsessively checking for updates. Now finally comes a super-slick looking Trailer for the Jonathan Sobol Film!
In this Con Movie about honor, revenge and the bonds of brotherhood, Crunch Calhoun (Kurt Russell), a third rate Motorcycle Daredevil and semi-reformed Art Thief, agrees to get back into the con game and pull off one final lucrative art theft with his untrustworthy brother, Nicky (Matt Dillon).
Jay Baruchel, Terence Stamp, Katheryn Winnick and Chris Diamantopoulous also star.
Watch the Trailer below:
Our Friends at eOne Films release The Art of the Steal on Friday, September 20, 2013. Those of us attending TIFF ’13 have two chances to see it:
Wednesday September 11 – Roy Thomson Hall at 9:30 PM
Thursday September 12 – Ryerson Theatre at 12:00 PM
