First Look: Freeman, Walken, and Macy in The Maiden Heist

I'm not sure how we missed this before today, but I definitely thought everyone should see these photos. As I was browsing the halls of the American Film Market yesterday, I came across some details on this film. The Maiden Heist is a crime comedy about three museum security guards who devise a plan to steal back artwork to which they have become attached after they are transferred to another museum. As you can already see, it stars Morgan Freeman, Christopher Walken, and William H. Macy, as well as Marcia Gay Harden. Is this one of those fun little buddy comedies that everyone will love or one of those forgettable indie comedies that no one will think twice about? I'm curious to see more on this, that's for sure!
We've got three new photos from the film featured below. Additionally, a few more can be found in the official gallery. Something about this just looks particularly amusing, or maybe it's just that I'm excited to see Freeman, Walken, and Macy together in a comedic heist movie?
The Maiden Heist is directed by English filmmaker Peter Hewitt, of Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, Garfield, and Zoom previously. The original screenplay was written by Michael LeSieur, of only You, Me and Dupree previously. The project was produced by Yari Film Group and is being distributed by them as well. The film is entirely finished and ready to go, which I'm guessing means we'll potentially see it debuting at Sundance next January or some other film festivals. Sound like an interesting film to you?

I love all of these guys, and seeing them in a quirky comedy will be great. Can't wait for more info.

Interesting casting choice. All three are great actors, and all of them can do comedy, especially Walken. I'm anxious to see where this goes.

Not particularly interested considering the man behind the camera for this was also responsible for such gems as Garfield and Zoom.

Fucking stellar cast, but this could get cheesy VERY quick.
