Joe Keery, Camila Morrone and Aldis Hodge are starring in “Marmalade,” a romantic heist from director Keir O’Donnell. The film was never formally announced, although some dribs and drabs about the project leaked out while it was shooting. Production wrapped this month in Minnesota.
According to the logline, the film follows a naive small-town man as he narrates the colorful tale of a romantic bank heist to his cunning cellmate. This is the directorial debut for O’Donnell, who also wrote the script. He is best known for his work in front of the camera on films such as “Ambulance,” “American Sniper” and “Wedding Crashers.”
