Three award-winning actors in a film about desperation and musical instruments? We're convinced.

Greg Kinnear, Alan Arkin, and Billy Crudup have all signed on for the crime drama 'The Convincer', which explores the troubling ripple effect as a result of one insurance salesman's search for a rare violin.

While its unclear yet who will play which role, this is Kinnear and Arkin's first team-up since 2006's 'Little Miss Sunshine', and yet another high profile role for one-time indie king Crudup following his turn as the melancholy, naked, and blue superhero Dr. Manhattan in 2009's big-screen adaptation of 'Watchmen'.

While its unclear yet who will play which role, this is Kinnear and Arkin's first team-up since 2006's 'Little Miss Sunshine,' and yet another high profile role for one-time indie king Crudup, who recently played the melancholy, naked and blue superhero Dr. Manhattan in the 2009 blockbuster 'Watchmen'.

Jill Sprecher will direct a script she co-wrote with Karen Sprecher. The two have worked together before on 2002's 'Thirteen Conversations About One Thing' and the Parker Posey office comedy 'ClockWatchers'.

Filming begins Monday in Minnesota.

Crudup can be seen next in the August release 'Eat, Pray, Love' opposite Julia Roberts, Kinnear in Paul Greengrass' 'The Green Zone' this March, and Arkin in the family comedy 'City Island,' also due out this March.
