Masterminds is based on the 1997 Loomis Fargo Bank robbery in Charlotte, NC, where 17.3 million in cash was stolen. The film was also filmed in North Carolina. Initially set to release August 2015, the Masterminds was postponed and actually cancelled indefinitely due to Relativity Media's financial issues that lead to their filing of Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Things began to look up and it is back on track for release.
Let me cut right to the chase, I love the cast, love the premise, i'm not so sure about the PG-13 rating but it could work. Masterminds is directed by Jared Hess who is the man responsible for 2004's Napoleon Dynamite which was incredibly goofy but became a cult-classic. He has plenty at his disposal for his newest film which will release this fall and I feel pretty good about it.
