Murray, Hutcherson Set For “Counterfeit”

Bill Murray, Josh Hutcherson and Linda Cardellini have all come onboard “Mad Dog and Glory” helmer John McNaughton’s fast-paced love story “The King of Counterfeit” at Lotus Entertainment.

The story centered around two ambitious young counterfeiters and the crooked superstar lawyer that mentors them. The young couple gets rich after learning how to perfectly print counterfeit money, but when a murderous fellow con man feels threatened by their game, getting caught by the cops becomes the least of their worries.

James Sclafani wrote the screenplay while Murray, Mike Medavoy and Robert Greenhut will produce.
