CUT BANK gets a cast with John Malkovich, Teresa Palmer, Ben Kingsley and more

It must be a great thing to have a script end up on the much talked about Black List. I mean, when you are able to draw the five names that writer Roberto Patino has nabbed to bring his script for CUT BANK (listed in 2009) to the big screen, you know you’ve got something special.

Deadline reports that the team of Armie Hammer, Ben Kingsley, John Malkovich, Michael Sheen and Teresa Palmer have all joined the cast of the upcoming picture.

The film is a crime thriller that follows the story of a mechanic who “wants to get the hell out of this tiny town frozen in time. His attempt to do so sets in motion a series of events that will change his life, and the life of Cut Bank, forever.” Set in Cut Bank, Montana, the film even has Matt Shakman aboard to direct.

"Who’s he?" you ask. Well, Shakman is a TV director who has been behind episodes of two of TV’s greatest franchises, Mad Men and Six Feet Under.

I haven’t read the script, so I can’t speak to the quality of writing, but just knowing that it was not only on The Black List but that names like these are willing to join the project makes me think that this is going to be something really damn special. You don’t get a fivesome like this without having something to back it up with. Right?
