Patrick Wilson and Alec Baldwin are set to headline noir mystery thriller Caught Stealing, written by David Hayter and based on the novel by Charlie Huston.

Myriad Pictures announced the project at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it will presell the film to foreign buyers. Myriad will work alongside APA on the U.S. sale.

Caught Stealing is the first book in Huston’s popular Henry Thompson trilogy.

Wilson will play Hank Thompson, a hotshot high school baseball prospect turned unlucky alcoholic, going-nowhere bartender who mistakenly gets caught up in a bloody treasure hunt through New York City. It turns out that the cat Hank’s neighbor left in his care is sitting on a secret. Hidden at the bottom of its cage is a key wanted by a sadistic cop (Baldwin), Russian mobsters, a Samoan hit man and a pair of psycho brothers who dress in leather gear.

Lost Rhino Films’ Marcus Chait, James Carpinello and Wilson will produce. Paula Wagner is executive producing with Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico. Myriad and Lost Rhino are in talks with directors for the project.

“Caught Stealing is, first and foremost, a great script,” D’Amico said. “It is a wrong-man plot worthy of Hitchcock and a brilliant adaption of the first book of the Henry Thompson trilogy. I look forward to seeing the story come to life on screen.”

David Hayter will also be executive producing along with Paula Wagner. Myriad director of production and acquisitions Ari Haas brought the film to Myriad.

The deal was negotiated by Will Lowery at APA on the producers’ behalf and senior vp business affairs David Ducar for Myriad.
