Jason Patric also joins the dark indie caper comedy

Johnson’s directing credits include “S.W.A.T.” and “The Sentinel.”

Basinger is repped by ICM and MPE; O’Hara is repped by ICM and her manager is Marc Gurvitz (Brillstein); Patric is repped by ICM and managed by Jason Weinberg (Untitled); Graham is repped by Gersh, and managed by Risa Shapiro (Schiff Company); and Johnson is repped by UTA.

Fichman and Hoppe are repped by CAA.
