Director Rob Minkoff’s (Stuart Little) caper flick, Flypaper, is making good on its namesake by getting several stars to glue themselves to it. The production recently landed Mekhi Phifer, Matt Ryan, Greg Germann, Octavia Spencer, Pruitt
Taylor Vince and Jeffrey Tambor to join Patrick Dempsey, Ashley Judd, Tim Blake Nelson, John Ventimiglia, Adrian Martinez, Rob Huebel and Curtis Armstrong. Written by
Jon Lucas and Scott Moore (The Hangover), the story follows a man caught
in the middle of two simultaneous robberies as he tries to protect
the teller with whom he’s secretly in love.
The film recently started filming in Louisiana. Foresight Unlimited, the production company, also has Universal Solider IV and the thriller, Recoil, upcoming. Flypaper is due for a 2011 release.
