Aronofsky eyes Securitas heist

Darren Aronofsky is eyeing to direct a heist pic based on the 2006 Securitas robbery in the UK.


Belfast-born writer Kerry Williamson is adapting the script from the Sports Illustrated article Breaking The Bank by Jon Wertheim and Howard Sounes’ book Heist: The Inside Story Of The World’s Biggest Robbery.


The story will follow events surrounding the audacious robbery in which a gang took a security guard and his family hostage, raided the Securitas depot in Tonbridge, Kent, and made off with £53m.


“The story is a very unique British heist tale with colourful London characters,” Aronofsky said. “I’ve always wanted to shoot in England and Kerry is the perfect writer to bring authenticity to this outrageous true bank job.”
