Thesp joins con-game film opposite Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon
Jonathan Sobol will helm from a script he penned.
Nicholas Tabarrok is producing through Darius Films. Jeff Sackman will exec produce.
Story centers around a third-rate motorcycle daredevil and semi-reformed art thief who agrees to get back into the con game and pull off just one more art scam with his untrustworthy brother. The plan goes awry, however, as it turns out that both brothers have their own agendas.
Winnick will play a Ukranian showgirl who is Russell’s girlfriend and support system.
Winnick just wrapped production on “A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan III” with Charlie Sheen.
She is repped by Gersh and Alchemy Entertainment.
