Mel Gibson has joined the cast of the action thriller Bandit, starring Elisha Cuthbert and Josh Duhamel.
Directed by Allan Ungar and written by Kraig Wenman, Bandit is based on Gilbert Galvan Jr, who went by the name of Robert Whiteman and was dubbed the infamous Flying Bandit for pulling off 63 bank and jewellery heists. The book draws reference from Robert Knuckle's bestseller The Flying Bandit as well as journalist Ed Arnold's interviews with Galvan Jr, reports variety.com.
Duhamel is set to star as Galvan Jr in the film that traces his escape from a US prison, and how he makes his way to Canada, acquires a new identity, marries and settles down but continues with the crime spree.
