Scott Waugh to Helm DreamWorks Heist Project


Scott Waugh, the stuntman-turned-helmer who made his directorial debut with Act of Valor (alongside co-director Mike McCoy), has lined up a new project with DreamWorks. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Waugh has signed on to direct an untitled project written by Con Air scribe Scott Rosenberg.

Details on the film’s plot are few, but the trade notes that the story will follow a man forced into an unlikely teaming with his brother in order to pull off an intricate heist.

Waugh will next release (also through DreamWorks) the video game adaptation Need for Speed. Starring Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, Dominic Cooper and Michael Keaton, the action film hits theaters on March 14, 2014.
