Liam Neeson and “Safe House” director Daniel Espinosa are both attached to “Gang Story,” a remake of Olivier Marchal’s French film “Les Lyonnais” at Thunder Road, Italia Films and Fundamental Films.
The story follows two childhood friends and notorious armed robbers in the early 1970s which ended with a spectacular arrest in 1974.
Cut to today, one of them has found peace by retiring from the “business”. But then the other, who has disowned nothing of his past, comes back into the picture.
“Daredevil” reboot scribe David Scarpa is penning the script. No word if this or Espinosa’s “Child 44” starring Tom Hardy and Gary Oldman will shoot first.
