Pitt and Poots will join Isabelle Huppert and Willem Defoe in the remarkable true story of Stéphane Breitwieser, who stole over 200 pieces of high priced artwork in a six year spree from 1995 to 2001. Pitt will play the master thief while Poots has signed on to play his lover, Karoline. Huppert will portray Breitwieser’s co-dependent mother, who tries to get rid of the evidence against her son by destroying over $2 billion worth of the art he had stolen.
Pitt is perhaps best known for his award winning turn as bootlegger Jimmy Darmody in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire. He will next be seen with Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds in Ariel Vromen’s Criminal. Imogen Poots’ latest, Frank & Lola, was reviewed well coming out of Sundance and was acquired by Universal. She will be seen next in Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups.
