Kiefer Sutherland, Gerard Depardieu, Thomas Jane and Til Schweiger are set to star in “Sleight of Hand,” an internationally-cast ensemble heist comedy.

Jon Lovitz, Johnny Hallyday and Eric Cantona are also set to join the pic, which revolves around a crew of small-time crooks in Paris who inadvertently end up possesing a rare gold coin belonging to a notorious French gangster.

Brad Mirman will helm with Richard Rionda del Castro producing through his Hannibal Classics shingle and Gilles Thompson. Patricia Eberle will exec produce.

Production will start in July as Hannibal Classics sells the pic during the Cannes Film Festival.

Sutherland’s most recent film, Lars von Trier pic “Melancholia,” will preem at Cannes.
