Patrick Wilson and Alec Baldwin sign for noir thriller

Alec Baldwin is getting back into the noir genre. It was announced at the Toronto International Film Festival that Baldwin, along with Patrick Wilson, would be signing on for a contemporary noir mystery thriller called Caught Stealing. The film – which is based on the first novel in the popular Henry Thompson trilogy by Charlie Huston – will be scripted by David Hayter and produced by Marcus Chait and James Carpinello, as well as Wilson. Producers are in talks with directors now.

Wilson plays Hank Thompson, a high school baseball prospect who has found himself an aging alcoholic, going-nowhere bartender who mistakenly gets caught up in a bloody treasure hunt through New York City.

Caught Stealing is, first and foremost, a great script,” says Kirk D’Amico, one of the executive producers. “It is a wrong-man plot worthy of Hitchcock and a brilliant adaption of the first book of the Henry Thompson trilogy. I look forward to seeing the story come to life on screen.” For more of our coverage of the Toronto International Film Festival, click here. ~Devin Garabedian

    Interesting. I’d watch. I like Hitchcock-esque films.
