'Lying & Stealing' Official Trailer with Theo James & Emily Rartajkowski
"If Sutton were alive today, he wouldn't be robbing banks - he'd be robbing the wealthy." Vertical Ent. has debuted an official trailer for an indie con thriller titled Lying & Stealing directed by Matt Aselton. The film tells the story of two clever grifters who team up for one big heist. Ivan is a gifted and discerning art thief who wants out. Elyse is an aspiring actress whose own past transgressions in Hollywood haunt her, as well as a mountain of debt. These two outsiders are drawn to each other. Starring Theo James and Emily Rartajkowski, with Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Fred Melamed, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Tim Bader, Evan Handler, and Keith Powell. It looks like a fun, low budget art heist film - but doesn't seem that original.
