Boyle to direct Smash And Grab film
Danny Boyle looks set to direct a movie about the world's most successful diamond thieves.
The Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire director is currently attached to the project, a feature film adaptation of the documentary Smash And Grab: The Story Of The Pink Panthers, reported Variety.
Danny apparently became interested in making the heist movie after watching the documentary, which was released this year.
Smash And Grab followed the diamond thieves and included footage taken from real-life surveillance cameras as well as interviews with several members of the gang.
Pathe and Fox Searchlight will co-finance the movie with the filmmaker's producing partner Christian Colson, who will produce through his Cloud Eight Films banner.
