The plot, per imdb: "Every day, $120 million in cash is taken out of circulation and destroyed by the Federal Reserve.  An elite crew of bank robbers sets out to pull off the ultimate heist and get to the money first, right under the noses of Los Angeles' most feared division of law enforcement."

"We are incredibly excited to partner once again with Gerard Butler and to have a very talented cast including Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson, O'Shea Jackson Jr. and Pablo Schreiber," producer  Tucker Tooley said in a release posted via PR Newswire. "  'Den of Thieves' is a gritty action thriller with broad commercial appeal, and our cast blends perfectly into a world where good and bad often intertwine."

This week's casting call for extras notes a need for business types with cars (not red or white). If you and your wheels have some spare time, email with "4 DAYS" in the subject line.
