True tale drama Stealing Cars is moving into gear with Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy, Mike Epps, Emory Cohen, and more with helmer Bradley Kaplan (Muhammad And Larry, The Love We Make), who makes the leap from documentary to narrative film with the pic.

Winter is producing with Dan Keston. Steve Levinson and Mark Wahlberg are executive producing with Erika Hampson.Heather Lind, Al Calderon, Leopold Manswell, Jeff Lima, Grace Van Patten, Deema Aitken, Chance Kelly, David Holmes, Craig “muMs” Grant, Chris Caldovino, Volney Steffire, Chris Cenatiempo and Black Thought also star.
