Jared Hess‘ Masterminds centers on a real-life $17 million heist, but Ocean’s 11 or Inside Man this ain’t. Instead, the thieves behind the operation include an unassuming armored car driver played by Zach Galifianakis, his flirty co-worker played by Kristen Wiig, their not-very-brilliant mastermind played by Owen Wilson. Jason Sudeikis stars as a hitman, Kate McKinnon as Galifianakis’ wife, and Leslie Jones as the cop who’s out to get them all. Yep, this film stars three of the four new Ghostbusters.

Jane Got a Gun, which recently revealed a new trailer, was perhaps the most promising Relativity Media project to be affected by the studio’s bankruptcy. Another project of Relativity’s that took a hit? Masterminds, a crime comedy directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) and executive produced by Jody Hill and Danny McBride (Eastbound and Down). It was originally scheduled for August of this year, but we won’t see Hess’ film until next fall.

Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess returns with Masterminds, a comedy about two dopes and a schemer (played by Kristen Wiig, Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson, respectively) who team up to steal a truckload of money. Amazingly, the heist goes well, but the fallout isn’t so easy to deal with. In the aftermath of the robbert, when everyone wants the money, things get weird. Among other problems, there’s Jason Sudeikis, turning in a potentially scene-stealing performance as a hired killer.
And then there’s the simple fact that everyone involved in this heist scheme seems to be a total idiot. Which might make the movie really entertaining, in a seriously over the top way. Check out the Masterminds trailer below. Read More »

Zach Galifianakis seems like a smart guy. Most of the characters he plays in the movies do not. So when he stars in a movie called Masterminds, you can probably guess that the title is being a bit sarcastic.
Directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite), Masterminds is an action-comedy based on the true story of the 1997 Loomis Fargo heist. Galifianakis’ David Ghantt makes off with $17 million, making this the largest cash robbery in the U.S. at the time.
Now his challenge is trying to get away with it — and that task seems easier said than done once you see his motley crew of associates including Kristen Wiig, Owen Wilson, and Jason Sudeikis. Check out the first Masterminds trailer after the jump.
