This week cameras begin to roll on a heist film called The Black Marks, which has a cast led by Kurt Russell, with Matt Dillon, Chris Diamantopoulos and Jay Baruchel in supporting roles. Jonathan Sobol wrote and is directing the story of a group of thieves led by a former motorcycle daredevil (Russell) who go after one last big score.
Now the film has added more supporting players: Terence Stamp, Katheryn Winnick and Kenneth Welsh.
Kurt Russell is Crunch Calhoun, “third-rate motorcycle daredevil and semi-reformed art thief who agrees to get back into the con game and pull off just one more art scam with his untrustworthy brother. The plan goes awry, however, as it turns out that both brothers have their own agendas.”
Last night, Variety announced that Katheryn Winnick would join the film as “a Ukranian showgirl who is Russell’s girlfriend and support system.”
Today Deadline adds that Terence Stamp and Kenneth Welsh will also be in the film, though their roles are not revealed. Stamp should need no introduction. Welsh is a solid character actor who shows up in TV (Haven, Human Target, Stargate: Atlantis) and film (The Aviator, Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer) but may be best recognized from his role as Windom Earle, the mentor-turned-nemesis of FBI agent Dale Cooper on Twin Peaks.
