William Monahan to Direct Heist


The Departed screenwriter William Monahan has teamed with producer Quentin Curtis to acquire “The Art of the Heist: Confessions of a Master Thief, Rock-and-Roller and Prodigal Son,” the forthcoming memoirs of career criminal Myles Connor.

Co-written with Jenny Siler, the book will be published in April by Collins.

Connor became an art connoisseur and a rock musician whose band, Myles and the Wild Ones, backed Roy Orbison. He was also an accomplished art and antiques thief who was involved in a series of museum robberies that grabbed headlines in Boston in the 1970s and 1980s.

It is unclear if Monahan will write the script, but he intends to direct the film.
