Eric Bana, Olivia Wilde in talks for ‘KIN’

Charlie Hunnam will also star in 2929's crime thriller

Eric Bana, Olivia Wilde and Charlie Hunnam are in talks to star in the crime thriller “Kin” for 2929 Entertainment and Mutual Film Co.

Stefan Ruzowitzky (“The Counterfeiters,” winner of the foreign-language pic Oscar in 2008) will direct the project, which Gary Levinsohn and Shelly Clippard are producing. Madhouse Entertainment co-produces.

Based on an original script from Zach Dean, “Kin” tells the story of two desperate sibling fugitives on the run who collide with the holiday homecoming of a troubled ex-boxer. Bana and Wilde will portray the outlaw duo; Hunnam will play the former sparrer.

Mutual Film optioned the rights from Dean and set up the project earlier this year at 2929.

Bana, who starred in “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” can next be seen in Joe Wright’s assassin pic “Hanna” alongside Saoirse Ronan and Cate Blanchett. Wilde stars in “Tron: Legacy,” which opens this weekend, and in the upcoming “Cowboys and Aliens”; Hunnam is the star of FX series “Sons of Anarchy.”

Lensing on “Kin” will begin in early March in Canada.

Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner’s 2929 Entertainment most recently co-financed the Ryan Gosling and Kirstin Dunst starrer “All Good Things.”

Mutual Film Co.’s bigscreen credits include “Saving Private Ryan” and “The Patriot.”

WME reps Bana and Wilde. Hunnam is repped by CAA.
