Jeremy Renner will be the King of Heists
Can we put Jeremy Renner in more movies? With THE AVENGERS and MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL coming up, you'd think that would be satisfying. But I'm still asking for more.
Renner is now attached to star in THE KING OF HEISTS. J. North Conway wrote the non-fiction novel the film is based on.
The actor will play, "George Leslie, who came to New York appearing to be a mannered gent, but secretly put together a crew and masterminded a heist of nearly $3 million in cash and securities from the Manhattan Savings Institution in 1878." Good thing he already got some training from making THE TOWN.
Will Staples will pen the adaptation. Staples recently sold his script for the sci-fi venture, MYTH. Sam Worthington is attached to star in that project with Lorenzo di Bonaventura and James Cameron producing.
