JJ Abrams Steals Diamonds

J.J. Abrams set to produce “World’s Biggest Diamond Heist”

J.J. Abrams has signed up to produce an unnamed movie about Italian diamond thieves.

The film will be based on a Wired magazine article by Joshua Davis titled ‘The Untold Story Of The World’s Biggest Diamond Heist’.

The story follows the exploits of Leonardo Notarbartolo, who led a group of Italian criminals on an impossible robbery.

Notarbartolo masterminded the theft of $100 million from the tightly-guarded Antwerp Diamond Centre. The money was never found and Notarbartolo was arrested in 2003 and sentenced to 10 years.

Abrams’s next project a reboot of the Star Trek franchise opens May 8th.
