Brendan Fraser stars in heist pic

Terry George to direct 'Whole Lotta Sole'

Brendan Fraser will topline comedic heist pic “Whole Lotta Sole,” produced by Jay Russell and directed by Terry George.

Budgeted at about $5.5 million, “Sole” will shoot in Northern Ireland.

Script by George and Thomas Gallagher centers on a young man robbing a fish shop in order to pay off a gambling debt; the heist goes terribly — and humorously — awry when it turns into a hostage situation. Fraser will portray the shopkeeper, who’s on the run from his gangster father-in-law.

Russell’s directing credits include “Ladder 49,” “The Water Horse” and “My Dog Skip.” George directed “Hotel Rwanda” from his own script and directed “Reservation Road.”

Fraser’s repped at CAA and Brillstein Entertainment.
