The Art of the Steal nabs two Canadian Screen Awards nominations

By now it's no secret The Basement is a mad supporter of Kurt Russell's new movie The Art of the Steal. We've covered Jonathan Sobol's flick extensively on this site, interviewed producer Nicholas Tabarrok, and review the flick later this week. Our thoughts land this Friday . . . Jan. 17.

Word reached us today that The Art of the Steal is up for two Canadian Screen Awards: one for Sobol's original screenplay, and a Best Supporting Actor nod for Jay Baruchel. Nicely done all!

Yeah, we haven't seen it yet, but it's nice to hear about a flick that is right up our alley -- and Canadian and starring Jack Burton -- get some recognition.

For the record, renowned art thief and former daredevil Crunch Calhoun (Russell) teams up with a motley crew of international grifters to pull off the most elaborate double-crossing caper of a lifetime.

Russell and Baruchel are joined by Matt Dillon, Terence Stamp, Katheryn Winnick and Chris Diamantopoulos. The flick hits VOD Feb. 7 and theatres March 14.
