Miguel Artera To Helm “Bank Robbers”

Miguel Arteta (“Cedar Rapids”) is attached to direct an adaptation of Troy Cook’s comic crime novel “47 Rules of Highly Effective Bank Robbers” for FilmColony and Mandalay Pictures says Variety.

The story follows a pair of lovers running from their families, the law and underworld characters as they rob banks across the South.

Arteta is supervising a script polish by Ryan Knighton, while Richard Gladstein and Cathy Schulman are producing. Casting will take place later this Summer.
