Sneakers Scribe Pens Abrams’ Heist Film

Phil Alden Robinson (“Sneakers,” “Field of Dreams”) is set to pen the untitled heist thriller that J.J. Abrams has set up at Paramount Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on a Wired magazine article, the true story will deal with the small group of Italian thieves who got around ten layers of security to access a vault beneath the Antwerp Diamond Center in Belgium.

The gang made off diamonds, gold and jewelry said to be in excess of $100 million. The article’s author Joshua Davis scored multiple interviews with those involved over a six-year span.
