Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig and Jason Sudeikis are already attached to the film, which will be released in theaters on August 14, 2015.

Napoleon Dynamite's Jared Hess is directing the project that's based on an original screenplay by Emily Spivey, with rewrites by Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer. The story follows an armored vehicle driver (Galifianakis) who is lured into a scheme by his work crush (Wiig). He works with some half-brained criminals led by Wilson's character to make off with $20 million, but when the gang double-crosses him, he's set up to take the fall.

Daly will play the supporting role of Plewe, an FBI agent who helps connect Wilson's character to the heist.
