The Theory of Everything helmer set to direct Hatton Garden Heist film

Untitled Hatton Garden Heist Film James Marsh Banner

Deadline is reporting that THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING and MAN ON WIRE filmmaker James Marsh has a new directing project lined up. According to the site, Marsh will helm a caper pic about last year's Hatton Garden jewelry heist, and he'll be directing from a script by THE ROAD scribe Joe Penhall.

The currently untitled film will be an adaptation of Mark Seal's Vanity Fair article, which recounted the tale of "a group of tough-guy retired criminals in their late 60s and 70s — with all kinds of physical maladies — who were mostly bored until they consulted a bunch of how-to books and figured out a way to pull off one last hurrah over a long weekend in April. They tunneled into the vault with heavy machinery and carted it all away."

The robbers got off with up to $300 million worth of loot during the incident, which has been called the "largest burglary in English legal history." But the group was arrested about six weeks later after a white Mercedes was seen on camera casing the location. Which actors would you like to see play the elderly criminals?
