Danny Boyle to Helm Smash and Grab

October 4, 2013


Danny Boyle has lined up a new project in the form of a narrative take on director Havana Marking's recent documentary Smash & Grab: The Story of the Pink Panthers, Variety reports. Released last month in the UK, the documentary is officially described as follows:

The Pink Panthers are the world's most successful jewel thieves. With incredible unprecedented access, gang members Mike and Lela reveal the gang’s networks, history and human story. Playing out like a noir thriller and using cutting edge animation, the film keeps a Hollywood-style heist at its centre. We also follow the global police forces determined to stop them - with increasing success. But beneath the glitz and excitement of the heists lie the dark truths of the illicit diamond trade and the war-shattered ruins of the Balkan states.

Boyle's diverse credits include Trainspotting, 28 Days Later, 127 Hours and, most recently, Trance. Set up through Fox Searchlight and Pathé, Smash and Grab will be produced by Christian Colson.
