“American Horror Story” alum and “X-Men” scene stealer Evan Peters has joined the heist thriller “American Animals” which Bart Layton (2012 doco “The Imposter”) will pen and direct for Film4 and AI Film.
Based on a true story, the action follows four young men who mistook their lives for a movie and attempted one of the most audacious heists in US history.
Katherine Butler, Dimitri Doganis, Derrin Schlesinger and Mary Jane Skalski will produce. Shooting will begin early next year.
