Miles Teller to star in The Life and Times of The Stopwatch Gang

03.10.2015

Just like Chris Pratt, it’s hard to find a film nowadays that doesn’t want to cast Miles Teller. The actor, who is hot off the success of WHIPLASH, has just signed on to THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE STOPWATCH GANG which will be directed by Ruben Fleischer.

Universal Pictures recently optioned the article written by Josh Dean that tells the true story of a trio of Canadian bank robbers who hit banks in both the US and Canada. They became infamous for never once firing their guns, as well as for the speed and precision with which they carried out their robberies.

The article’s synopsis, which originated from The Atavist, tells us more:

They were in and out in less than two minutes—that’s how they got away with millions. And for the duration of their reign, no bank robbers were more feared (though they never fired their guns) nor more pursued or more mythologized than the Stopwatch Gang. The members themselves were straight out of central casting: Lionel Wright, a meticulous introvert who could disappear in a room full of people; Paddy Mitchell, a charming and well-connected crook who saw an angle in everything and would go to any lengths to avoid the hell of being locked away; and Stephen Reid, a fearless point man who could find the weakness in any system and whose story—of addiction and descent into crime, of redemption and literary fame—was all prelude to a tragic but life-saving fall from grace.

It’s not said which character Miles Teller will portray, and I believe he could play any of them, but my guess would be Lionel Wright. The story sounds fascinating as I love a good bank robbery/heist tale; I’ll be interested to discover who else Ruben Fleischer finds to round out the cast.

Miles Teller will next be seen in INSURGENT which opens March 20, 2015, followed by FANTASTIC FOUR on August 7, 2015.

Miles Teller is such a dopey looking fuck, but he was great in whiplash. Favorite moment was when JK Simmons was calling him out for the single tear moment.

I thought he should have been nominated for best actor over Carrell. Loved Whiplash. Don't know him from anything else.

Sounds like an interesting film and another possible solid role for Teller. He was fantastic in both Whiplash and The Spectacular Now. While his comedies aren't as solid I still he think he's entertaining in them. I plan on being there for Fantastic Four which looks better than expected.

Despite better then usual in Whiplash, I still think he's a terrible actor.
