The Hollywood Reporter confirms Lorne Michaels, creator and producer of Saturday Night Live, will produce the new comedy alongside John Goldwyn. Reportedly, Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess will be directing the movie with a script written by Emily Spivey, rewritten by Danny McBride and Jody Hill, and now being worked on by Chris Spillman and Hubbel Palmer.

As reported by Coming Soon, Loomis Fargo will be an action-comedy based on a true story about one of the largest bank heists in history.

David Scott Ghannt, an armored car driver for Loomis Fargo & Company, formed a team of criminals in Charlotte, North Carolina to steal $17.3 million. The criminal team was able to pull off the robbery but were later tracked down and arrested.

Carrey's involvement with the project isn't set. He is still negotiating the terms of the role. He will play Ghannt if he accepts. The film hasn't set its budget, which is presumed to be $30 million, and is still looking for people to back the project.
