Millennium Films is developing a remake of 2004 French heist drama Le Convoyeur, and the studio is negotiating with Eric Bana to star and F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job) to direct, says Variety.
Written by David Ayer and Andrew Kevin Walker, the drama has been retitled Armored and relocated to Michigan. The story follows a man who takes a job for an armored car company and ingratiates himself with his co-workers, who trust him enough to make him part of their heist plans. Unbeknownst to his colleagues, the man had his own motives for taking the job.
The film likely will be retitled because of an upcoming Screen Gems drama that bears the same title.
Armored is being produced by Michaels Goldwyn partners Lorne Michaels and John Goldwyn, Emmett/Furla’s Randall Emmett, Avi Lerner and Michael Aguilar.
