Stahl, Christensen to topline 'Rob'

Nick Stahl and Erika Christensen will star in “How to Rob a Bank,” produced by Rick Lashbrook, Darby Parker, Arthur Sarkissian and Tim O’Hair.

Indie heist comedy, written and to be directed by first-time helmer Andrews Jenkins, begins production next week in Los Angeles.

Story centers on a twentysomething slacker and a bank employee who get caught in the middle of a bank heist and are forced to arbitrate between the robbers and the police.

Jenkins has directed commercials for Nike and Adidas along with musicvideos for Korn, the Dandy Warhols, Gwen Stefani and his own band, Dirty Halo.

Sarkissian’s a producer on “Rush Hour 3.” Lashbrook and Parker produced “Unknown,” starring Jim Caviezel, which was sold to the Weinstein Co.
