Deadline reports that Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kate Bosworth, WWE’s Dave Bautista, and Gina Carano have joined the cast of the heist film, Bus 657, from Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films. They join actor Robert De Niro in the cast.

The heist film follows a father (Morgan) and a co-worker who steal from a casino in order to pay for the medical expenses of the daughter to Morgan’s character. The two hijack two buses full of people, and their plot goes awry. De Niro will portray the casino owner, with Bosworth as his “estranged” daughter. Carano is set to play a cop pursuing the hijacked buses.

Grindhouse/Lionsgate will distribute the film, which has a $15 million budget. Scott Mann will direct from a script by Stephen Sepher and Max Adams. Filming is slated to begin on October 13 in Mobile, Alabama.
