The Rolling Stones rocker has agreed to take part in the movie after he was approached by director Giuseppe Capotondi and asked to portray English art collector and dealer Joseph Cassidy, alongside Claes Bang and Elizabeth Debicki.

The film, which is based on Charles Willeford's novel of the same name, is set is present-day Italy and focuses on an art world scam that goes horribly wrong.

Bang will play beguiling art critic James Figueras, while Debicki will portray his love interest Berenice Hollis as the pair embark on a journey to Joseph's lavish Lake Como estate to discuss a deal they can't refuse.

However, things take a turn for the worse when the pair are told to steal a new masterpiece from the legendary Debney's collection for Joseph.

But, while spending time with Debney, the couple realise all is not what it seems but James pushes on with the mission because he's determined to further his career - even if that means he has to use blackmail, burglary and even murder.
