AFM: Alec Baldwin’s ‘Caught Stealing’ Nabs Director Wayne Kramer

WAYNE KRAMER Directs Caught Steeling

Actioner based on Huston novel

Myriad Pictures has tapped Wayne Kramer to direct the thriller “Caught Stealing,” starring Patrick Wilson and Alec Baldwin.

Myriad will be pre-selling the film at the American Film Market next week and will work alongside agency APA on the U.S. sale.

The project re-teams Kramer with Baldwin, who received an Oscar nomination for his work in Kramer’s “The Cooler.”

Lost Rhino Films’ Marcus Chait, James Carpinello, and Patrick Wilson will produce. Paula Wagner is executive producing alongside Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico.

“Caught Stealing” is adapted by David Hayter (“X-Men”) from Charlie Huston’s novel of the same name.

Wilson will play a hotshot high school basketball player turned unlucky, going-nowhere bartender who mistakenly gets caught up in a bloody treasure hunt through New York City.  Baldwin will portray a sadistic cop.

“Caught Stealing” is the first book in Huston’s Henry Thompson trilogy, followed by “Six Bad Things” and “A Dangerous Man.”

Kramer’s credits include “Running Scared,” “Crossing Over” and “Pawn Shop Chronicles.” He is represented by WME and manager Renee Tab at Sentient Entertainment.

    What’s up with both Variety and Hollywood Reporter’s search skills? You’ve both featured a photograph of the wrong Wayne Kramer. Your photograph above is of the musician/rock star Wayne Kramer. You’d think with all the films this director has done, you’d have access to one picture of him. Google is your friend, if you actually read the text that accompanies an image search.
