Recently deadline announced that Steve Carell is going star in and produce an upcoming heist film. The movie is called Conviction, here is what it is their description of the movie:
follows a mastermind bank robber who serves five years in prison following a botched heist who is forced by an FBI agent to entrap his protege as the upstart pulls off a multimillion-dollar job. The original script had aHeat tone, but it stalled. It is being turned into an action comedy with a tone similar to 48 Hours and Ocean’s Eleven, with Carell at its center. Joel Silver, who has had success with this kind of thing with 48 Hours and Lethal Weapon, will produce the film
I am a huge fan of Carell's work and of 48 Hours, so I have a feeling that I am going to go see this movie. I think it has the potential of being a good film. We are going to have to keep an eye out for this one. Let us know what you think.
