Travis Fimmel, Kate Bosworth Star in Heist Movie ‘Finding Steve McQueen’

Travis Fimmel, Kate Bosworth, William Fichtner and Forest Whitaker are starring in the heist movie “Finding Steve McQueen” with Mark Steven Johnson directing.

John Finn, Rhys Coiro and Louis Lombardi have come aboard in supporting roles. Shooting will start next month in Atlanta.

“Finding Steve McQueen” is based on the true story of the 1972 bank heist by a gang of close-knit thieves from Youngstown, Ohio, trying to steal $30 million in illegal contributions and blackmail money from President Richard Nixon’s secret fund. Keith Sharon and Ken Hixon wrote the screenplay.

The film is being produced by Anthony Mastromauro of Identity Films, Silvio Muraglia of Paradox Studios,  Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi of Ambi Group and Alexandra Klim. Mikael Wiren will executive produce.

Ambi Distribution, the worldwide sales arm of the Ambi Group, is handling global sales and will be introducing the project to buyers during the Toronto Film Festival. Principal photography is slated to begin next month in Atlanta.

Iervolino said, “Aligning a cast of this caliber with a fearless director like Mark has us all excited to see this story come to life. This is an explosive, character-driven film, smartly told in a way that will keep audiences guessing throughout. We’re eager to bring this amazing group together and start shooting in just a few weeks.”

Fimmel is the lead in the History Channel’s series “Vikings” and starred in “Warcraft” and “Maggie’s Plan.” He recently completed “Lean on Pete.”

Bosworth’s credits include “Still Alice” and “Superman Returns.” Whitaker starred in History Channel’s “Roots” and will be seen in Amy Adams’ sci-fi thriller “Arrival.”

Johnson’s directing credits include “Ghost Rider,” “Daredevil” and “Elektra.” Ambi’s slate includes “Future World,” the thriller “Black Butterfly,” a remake of Christopher Nolan’s “Memento,” “Lamborghini – The Legend,” the faith based children’s film “Beyond the Sun,” featuring His Holiness Pope Francis, “This Beautiful Fantastic” and James Franco’s “In Dubious Battle.”
