'Flypaper' attracts more cast members

Mekhi Phifer, Jeffrey Tambor join crime caper

Mekhi Phifer, Matt Ryan, Greg Germann, Octavia Spencer, Pruitt Taylor Vince and Jeffrey Tambor have been cast in Foresight Unlimited's "Flypaper."

They join Patrick Dempsey, Ashley Judd and Tim Blake Nelson in the crime caper being directed by Rob Minkoff ("Stuart Little"). The feature, which began filming Monday in Louisiana, was written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore ("The Hangover") and follows a man caught in the middle of two simultaneous robberies as he tries to protect the teller with whom he's secretly in love.

John Ventimiglia, Adrian Martinez, Rob Huebel and Curtis Armstrong have also been cast in the project. Mark Damon, Peter Safran and Dempsey are producing; Joannie Burstein, Greg Walker, Tamara Stuparich De La Barra and Gudrun Giddings are executive producers.

Foresight is also moving forward with the action thrillers "Recoil" and "Universal Soldier IV," which will shoot in the fall. The company is in postproduction on the thriller "The Ledge," which stars Liv Tyler, Charlie Hunnam, Patrick Wilson and Terrence Howard.
