Following his success with “Birth of a Nation” at Sundance, filmmaker Nate Parker is set to pen the script for the heist thriller “Nate Parker” at 2016 BB Film Productions and Bleiberg Entertainment.
Marcio Garcia will helm the film inspired by his short “Predilecao”. That follows a low-level criminal who meets a legendary thief during a brief jail stint. Together, they hatch a plan and assemble an international team for an elaborate bank robbery.
Uri Singer, Ehud Bleiberg and Parker are producing, and filming begins later this year.
