Lying and Stealing — Official Trailer


added: Thu, May 16th '19

A skilled L.A. art thief and a beautiful aspiring Hollywood actress join forces to pull off a heist in the official trailer for the stylish con-artist caper "Lying and Stealing," which stars "Divergent" actor Theo James and model-turned-actress Emily Rartajkowski (Gone Girl, I Feel Pretty).

Co-starring Ebon Moss-Bachrach (The Punisher, Girls), Fred Melamed (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Lady Dynamite), and Isiah Whitlock Jr. (The Wire, BlacKkKlansman), the crime film follows Ivan (James), a professional crook who has carved out a career sneaking into swanky L.A. cocktail parties to steal priceless artwork from the rich.

To pay off an old debt, Ivan must perpetrate a major heist. He soon teams up with a gorgeous amateur con woman (Rartajkowski). But things get complicated when Ivan discovers he's being pursued by the FBI.

From director and co-writer Matt Aselton and co-writer Adam Nagata, the team behind the indie rom-com "Gigantic," "Lying and Stealing" is being released exclusively on DirecTV on June 13th and will then arrive in theaters and on VOD July 12th.

Ivan (Theo James) is a gifted and discerning art thief who wants out. Elyse (Emily Rartajkowski) is an aspiring actress whose own past transgressions in Hollywood haunt her. These two clever grifters decide to team up for one last, big daring heist.
