The Australian beauty will star in the upcoming bank robbery movie.

Mark Steven Johnson’s upcoming heist film Finding Steve McQueen has a major casting change. Lead Kate Bosworth has dropped out and Australian actress Rachael Taylor will replace her in the starring role of Molly Morphy.

Taylor is a rising film and TV star with credits ranging from Jessica Jones to Crisis to Charlie's Angels. She can currently be seen in the Netflix sci-fi film ARQ, and can next be seen opposite Matthew McConaughey in Gold.

Finding Steve McQueen is based on the true story of the biggest bank heist in U.S. history. In 1972 a gang of Ohio thieves tried their hand at stealing $30 million from President Richard Nixon’s secret California stash of illegal contributions and blackmail money.

Forest Whitaker and Travis Fimmel also star in the film, based on a screenplay by Keith Sharon and Ken Hixon.

The Daredevil director kicked off principal photography on the film recently in Atlanta.

Finding Steve McQueen is being produced and financed by Silvio Muraglia (Paradox Studios) with Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi (AMBI Group). Anthony Mastromauro (Identity Films) and Alexandra Klim will also produce with Mikael Wiren executive producing. AMBI Distribution is handling global sales of the film.
