Gareth Evans Is Breaking The Bank
UFC fighter joins heist society

Gareth Evans Is Breaking The Bank

Though he’s currently focusing on the eagerly anticipated follow-up to The Raid (out in under two weeks! Not long to wait!), writer-director Gareth Evans is parlaying the acclaim for the action-packed head-punch into more filmmaking gigs. His latest possible job? Handling fact-based drama Breaking The Bank for Universal.

Drawn from a couple of sources – Howard Sounes’ book Heist: The True Story Of The World’s Biggest Cash Robbery and L Jon Wertheim’s Sports Illustrated article Breaking The Bank – the story will explore how former UFC brawler “Lightning” Lee Murray came to concoct the biggest cash robbery in England back in 2006.

Darren Aronofsky’s loss is Evans’ gain, since writer Kerry Williamson originally developed the script for him. But with Aronofsky currently occupied bringing Noah to life with Russell Crowe, Universal has decided to go another way. Evans has at least one other film in development (Glendragon), but Bank does sound like something he could pull off really effectively. We’ll have to wait and see if he ends up making it.
