Director Stephen Kay ("Sons of Anarchy," "Get Carter") has signed on to helm the indie heist thriller "6 Bullets From Now" at 13th Sign Pictures and Blue Collar Productions.
The film is based on the infamous true story of the robbery of New York City's Pierre Hotel on New Year's Day 1972.
Five tuxedoed gunmen stole millions in cash and jewels, and it remains to this day the largest hotel robbery in history.
The film's story centers on a man whose life spirals out of control as he masterminds the perfect heist of the hotel vault.
Christian Darren penned the script, which is being done in the tone of a classic 1970s heist film. Tommy Alastra, Joe Mundo, Mark Rowen and Julie Rowen will produce.
Shooting aims to begin in the late Summer in New York City.
