Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde star in thriller Deadfall, as brother and sister Addison and Liza, who split up after a casino heist goes horribly wrong.
The pair are reunited in an explosive showdown during another family’s Thanksgiving.
Australian actor Bana was attracted to the screenplay.
He said: “I just thought it was a really, really well written script, I thought it was very entertaining without out meaning to be funny or entertaining. But I thought the situations that in particular that my character forces everyone to be in, was really compelling, and kind of humorous. It’s hard finding great scripts, and it is also hard finding great dialogue. I felt like this was the case where the two came together.”
After the two siblings go their seperate ways, Liza is picked up by ex boxer Jay, played by Charlie Hunnam and falls in love with him.
She joins him for a Thanksgiving meal with his parents June and Chet, played by veteran actors Sissy Spacek and Kris Kristofferson.
Bana was full of praise for his co-star Olivia Wilde, who also starred in Tron: Legacy and Cowboys and Aliens: “Yeah she is a doll. She is very funny. You don’t get a true sense of that with Liza, with her character. She was great to work with, and great to muck around with on the set as well.
“I just wish I had more stuff with her in the film. I got a kiss in though. I managed to squeeze in a kiss there. Even though she does play my sister. Which makes Addison (character name) even more weird. You know it’s there.”
Deadfall is directed by Austrian Stefan Ruzowitzky, who won an Academy Award for his 2008 film The Counterfeiters.
It is now playing in cinemas in the US and some European countries.
