The thriller is called Heist Society and was won in a bidding war by the WB, and will be based on the novels by Ally Carter!
Drew will be teaming up with Denis Di Novi as a producer, and Shauna Cross is set to write the script. Adaptations are tough, so let's hope she makes it awesome!
Here's what it's about for those of you who don't know:
The book follows a young woman named Katarina Bishop who hails from an extended family of cat burglars and master thieves. The girl leaves her illicit life behind, but when her father is the prime suspect in the case of a mobster's missing art collection, she assembles a crew to track down the art and steal it back.
Like a lot of adaptations nowadays, the studio is making the characters older to be more appealing or something. Actually, we don't know why they wouldn't put their faith into youngsters. Harry Potter pulled it off, but, let's be honest — Harry Potter was unusual because it was done correctly.
We're interested to see who the cast now, for sure!
Does this get U amped??
