Simon Pegg, JK Simmons to star in 'My Only Sunshine'
Los Angeles: Oscar winner JK Simmons and actor Simon Pegg will topline the indie movie "My Only Sunshine".
The movie, being touted as a "comedy/heist thriller", will be directed by Mark Palansky from a script by JT Petty and K Reed Petty, reported Deadline.
The story follows a passionately dysfunctional couple who orchestrate a bank robbery as an unconventional act of bloodthirsty marriage counselling.
They try to make peace with the shocking mystery of their relationship throughout the violent hostage situation, discovered by a cop hostage negotiator who previously investigated a past related crime.
The project is backed by Circle of Confusion and Patriot Pictures.
Matt Smith, Lawrence Mattis and Michael Mendelsohn will produce, while Petty, Natalie Perrotta and Jim Steele will be serving as executive producers.
"My Only Sunshine" will start production later this year.
