Will produce and direct the true life tale…

Filmmaker Jason Reitman (‘Up In The Air,’ ‘Juno,’ ‘Thank You for Smoking’) is to take the helm of Nick Hornby-penned script ‘I Would Only Rob Banks for My Family.’

Per Variety, the film is based on a Texas Monthly article by Skip Hollandsworth about “a Houston family who pulled off two heists before they were caught attempting a third. Scott Catt, a structural engineer, teamed with his 20-year-old son Hayden and his 18-year-old daughter for the robberies.”

Reitman is producing with his Right of Way shingle, and his father, Ivan Reitman, is on board to produce via Montecito Picture Company.
