Constantin Film has acquired the film rights to Dave Zeltserman’s forthcoming crime novel “28 Minutes.” The company plans to produce a movie adaptation under the title Outsourced, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Travis Milloy has been hired to write the screenplay.
Constantin’s Robert Kulzer and Impact Pictures’ Paul W.S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt are producing. The trio produced the three “Resident Evil” films. John Tomko also will produce.
Zeltserman’s gritty novel follows a group of unemployed software engineers who plan a bank robbery that gets them in trouble with mobsters from Boston and Russia.
“The book is very real and original with believable contemporary characters,” Bolt said. “We want to make an intelligent heist movie that people can relate to.”
