The company has set an Aug. 14, 2015, release for the comedy, which will be directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite).
The project, formerly known as Loomis Fargo, is based on the true story of four dim-witted Southerners who pulled off one of the biggest heists in American history, robbing almost $20 million from a Loomis Fargo armored truck. Production will begin July in North Carolina.
Sudeikis will play a hitman in the movie.
Emily Spivey wrote the original script for the project, which was rewritten by Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer.
Lorne Michaels and John Goldwyn are producing. Executive producing are Danny McBride, Jody Hill, Kevin Messick, Erin David, Ryan Kavanaugh and Tucker Tooley.
Tooley was a producer on We’re the Millers, the 2013 New Line hit comedy in which Sudeikis starred. The comedian is currently filming Leslye Headland‘s Sleeping With Other People.
He is repped by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
