Reitman, Hornby Plan A Family Heist Film

Filmmaker Jason Reitman and author Nick Hornby are teaming for the true story bank heist film “I Would Only Rob Banks for My Family” for Fox Searchlight and Montecito Picture Company.

Based on a Texas Monthly article by Skip Hollandsworth, the story revolves around a seemingly ordinary Texas family who pulled off two bold heists before they were caught attempting a third.

Hornby will adapt the script while Ivan Reitman, Helen Estabrook and Ali Bell will produce. The younger Reitman is not expected to work on the project until after he wraps his duties on the upcoming Hulu series “Casual”.
