Adrien Brody, Jordana Brewster and rapper Akon have been cast in the new thriller American Heist.

They join already cast Hayden Christensen in the indie action thriller, which is a remake of the 1959 Steve McQueen film The Great St. Louis Bank Robbery.

Sarik Andreasyan is directing, while Tove Christensen, Gevond Andreasyan, Georgy Malkov and Vladimir Poliakov will produce the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

American Heist tells the story of two brothers with troubled histories, one is struggling to live a normal life while the other has just been released from prison.

One drags the other into an ill-fated bank robbery led by a group of dangerous criminals, testing the loyalty of their sibling bond.

Filming on American Heist begins on June 24.
