The story centers on Los Angeles’ very own gentleman bank robber — Eddie Dodson. He spent the 1980s, robbing banks all across Southern California to support his trendy Melrose Avenue shop, and his cooler-than-cool lifestyle, as well as a growing drug habit. But he never shot anyone and, in fact, only ever used a fake gun to commit his robberies. Sturgess will play Dodson with Lucas starring as his girlfriend.
Jamie Patricof, Eric Eisner, Leonid Rozhetskin, Christine Vachon, Brad Simpson, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Jocelyn Hayes-Simpson will produce.
