Dito Montiel (A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints) is directing a new heist film called Empire State, which is based on true events. The events that the film are based off of happened in 1982 when two childhood friends planned to rob an armored car. The film is set to go into production later this year.
State has a well-known cast, starting with Emma Roberts (Scream 4, The Art Of Getting By) who has been in a number of indie films along with main-stream films. She is also currently filming an indie comedy with John Cusack called Adult World. State is also starring Dwayne Johnson , who plays the NYPD detective out to get them. Starring with Roberts as one of the two friends is Liam Hemsworth, who is a waiter and a possible love interest. With the film not going into production until later this year, I don’t think we will see State until early 2013, but with this cast and brief bio of the film I think it will be worth the wait.
