Pegg Simmons Lead Heist Comedy Sunshine

Simon Pegg and J.K. Simmons are set to star in the heist comedy “My Only Sunshine” from director Mark Palansky (“Penelope,” “Rememory”).

The story follows a passionate but dysfunctional married couple that devises a plan to rob a bank as a form of bloodthirsty marriage counseling.

They try to make peace with the mystery of their relationship throughout the violent hostage situation, one discovered by a cop hostage negotiator who previously investigated a past related crime.

Michael Mendelsohn, Matt Smith and Lawrence Mattis are producing and filming is slated to begin this Fall ahead of a 2020 release. No distributor is yet attached but the project is being sold at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival.
