Fimmel, Fichtner, Bosworth Join “Steve McQueen”

Travis Fimmel (“Warcraft”), Kate Bosworth (“Superman Returns”), William Fichtner (“The Dark Knight”) and Forest Whitaker (“The Last King of Scotland”) are all set to join the heist movie “Finding Steve McQueen” at Identity Films, Paradox Studios and Ambi Group.

The true story tale deals with the 1972 bank heist by a gang of close-knit thieves from Ohio who try to steal $30 million in illegal contributions and blackmail money from President Richard Nixon’s secret fund.

John Finn, Rhys Coiro and Louis Lombardi are also onboard the project which “Daredevil” and “Ghost Rider” helmer Mark Steven Johnson is directing.

Anthony Mastromauro, Silvio Muraglia, Alexandra Klim, Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi will produce. Keith Sharon and Ken Hixon wrote the screenplay and shooting will start next month in Atlanta.
