Julia Roberts is looking to star as a lawyer in the courtroom drama “Train Man” at FilmNation Entertainment. Simon Stephenson penned the script but no director is yet onboard.
The film would follow Darius McCollum, the Internet celebrity and criminal known for impersonating public transit authorities in order to drive away subway trains and Greyhound buses.
McCollum, who is diagnosed with Aspergers, has been arrested more than twenty-five times for such crimes with Roberts playing his most recent lawyer. His previous heists, starting at age 15, are shown throughout the film via flashbacks.
