The Hollywood Reporter brings words that Donald Sutherland (The Hunger GamesAd Astra) has signed onto The Burnt Orange Heresy. He will star as a reclusive painter that attracts the attention of potential thieves. He is joined by Claes Bang (The Square, The Girl in the Spider’s Web), Elizabeth Debicki (The Night Manager, Peter Rabbit) and Mick Jagger.

The neo-noir thriller is based on the cult novel by Charles Willeford about an art world scam gone wrong with a screenplay from Oscar-nominated writer Scott. B. Smith (A Simple Plan). Giuseppe Capotondi (The Double Hour) is directing the film.

THR provided an updated description that will be sure to appeal to fans of both heists and thrillers alike: “New lovers James Figueras (Bang), an ambitious art critic, and Berenice Hollis (Debecki) travel to Lake Como to meet the wealthy art dealer and collector Joseph Cassidy (Jagger), who is obsessed with reclusive painter Jerome Debney (Sutherland). Cassidy offers Figueras a rare opportunity to meet Debney in exchange for stealing a new masterpiece from the artist’s studio. As the couple spend more and more time with Debney, they realize nothing is as it seems and the operation soon spins out of control. But Figueras will do almost anything, even commit murder, to further his career.”

There are plenty of talented individuals behind the scenes working on the film as well with three-time BAFTA-nominated William Horberg (The Kite Runner, Cold Mountain, The Talented Mr. Ripley) set to produce through his Wonderful Films banner alongside Oscar-nominated David Lancaster (Nightcrawler) and David Zander (Spring Breakers). Stephanie Wilcox and Aeysha Walsh will executive produce.

The Burnt Orange Heresy just started production this week at Lake Como.
