Gregory Hoblit Is Robbing The Grave
He's up for a heist drama

Untraceable director Gregory Hoblit just can’t stay away from crime, it would seem – at least on screen. According to The Wrap, he’s now attached to make heist drama Robbing The Grave.

Karl Gajdusek and Predators co-writer Michael Finch have crafted the script, whose story is sadly locked in one of those Hollywood vaults where screenplay concepts are kept until big name actors get a glance at them. But it’s been described as Ocean’s Eleven meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, which you can translate however you wish.

Oh, and there’s also the tagline: “Everyone’s going to die, but it’s how you get there that matters.” Yeah, cheers for that. Really clears a lot up about the plot. Sounds more like a chapter from a darker-than-usual self-help book, and doesn't give much away really.

There’s no word on any casting or even studio involvement yet, though the package is now being shopped around to potential buyers and most likely looking to recruit an actor or two.
