"22 Jump Street" scribe to tackle "Heist" DreamWorks crime movie

PanARMENIAN.Net - Oren Uziel has been brought on board to work on Heist, a crime movie set up at DreamWorks, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Scott Waugh, who helmed Need for Speed for the studio, is attached to direct and will produce with Steve Zaillian.

John Hlavin originated the script, which has also been worked on by Simon Beaufoy and Scott Rosenberg.

Tom Cruise previously expressed interest in the project but his current status vis-à-vis Heist is unclear. The actor has more pressing projects, such as Mission: Impossible 5 and Go Like Hell, in his orbit.

Garrett Basch of Film Rites is executive producing Heist, whose logline is kept locked in a safe.

Uziel wrote 22 Jump Street and Men in Black 4 for Sony. He also has the father-son adventure Overnight set up at Disney; Ruben Fleischer recently came on board as director.
