Gudegast Uncovers Den of Thieves

Christian Gudegast (“A Man Apart”) has signed on to direct the bank heist drama “Den of Thieves” for Relativity Media says Variety.

The story centers on a thief who’s planning a heist but gets trapped between two sets of criminals. Shooting is scheduled to begin in the Fall.

Gudegast wrote the screenplay with Paul Scheuring nearly a decade ago with Peter Berg previously attached to direct the film at New Line. When that fell through, “X-Files” scribes Glen Morgan and James Wong came onboard to produce as a pilot for Fox in 2004 – but it never made it to air.
