Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon and Jay Baruchel are getting together for one last big score.

The three thespians are wasting no time getting the new year started as they're headed to the considerably colder climes of Canada for the heist comedy, "The Black Marks," according to The Playlist.

"The Black Marks" centers on Crunch Calhoun (Russell), a third-rate motorcycle daredevil and semi-reformed art thief who reassembles his old team and joins forces with his ne'er-do-well brother, Nicky (Dillon), in order to steal a priceless historical book. This leads to an even riskier heist devised by Nicky, and things will most likely go right down the toilet from there.

No word on what role Baruchel will be playing, but it's probably safe to assume that he's part of Russell's gang o' thieves. The film will be written and directed by Jonathan Sobol ("A Beginner's Guide to Endings").

"The Black Marks" sounds like it will be a quick, slick job for Russell and Dillon before they segue into their respective higher-profile projects this year, Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" and "Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story." Meanwhile, Baruchel will next be playing himself (sort of) in the meta-comedy about the end of the world, "The Apocalypse."

"The Black Marks" will begin shooting later this month up in the Great White North.
