Jim Carrey is set to team up with “Napolean Dynamite” director Jared Hess to bring the real-life story of a banker-turned-bankrobber to the big screen.

Reports suggest “The Mask” star has signed up to lead the cast of Hess' new film “Loomis Fargo”, inspired by the true story of a disgruntled bank worker who teams up with his crush to rob his employers.

Production on the project is set to begin in April.
