*Mekhi Phifer has joined the colossal ensemble cast of “Flypaper,” a crime caper about a man caught in the middle of two simultaneous robberies as he tries to protect the teller with whom he’s secretly in love.

Matt Ryan, Greg Germann, Octavia Spencer, Pruitt Taylor Vince and Jeffrey Tambor have also been cast in the project from director Rob Minkoff (“Stuart Little”). They join Patrick Dempsey, Ashley Judd and Tim Blake Nelson.

The feature, which began filming Monday in Louisiana, was written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore (“The Hangover”).

John Ventimiglia, Adrian Martinez, Rob Huebel and Curtis Armstrong have also been cast in the project.

Meanwhile, Foresight is in postproduction on the thriller “The Ledge,” which stars Terrence Howard, Liv Tyler, Charlie Hunnam and Patrick Wilson.
