Silver Pictures has picked up the remake rights to 2004 French heist film "Le Convoyeur" which will be retitled "Cash Truck". Studio Canal is fully financing the project's development.
The story follows a father driving behind an armored car when masked gunmen try hijacking the vehicle. Stray gunfire hits the father's car, killing his son in the passenger seat.
Seeking to avenge the death and suspecting an inside job, he takes job with the armored car company.
Andrew Kevin Walker and David Ayer penned previous drafts of the remake when it was setup at Paramount and Nu Image/Millennium. A new scribe will now be brought in.
Silver and StudioCanal previously teamed on the 2011 thriller "Unknown" and the currently shooting "Non-Stop," both of which star Liam Neeson.
