The Fast and the Furious director Rob Cohen has signed on to direct an action heist thriller called Risk. According to the report, the film blends psychological suspense and action, and the story follows "a brilliant thief who is released early from prison to execute a nearly impossible art heist." Cohen had this to say in a statement:
“I’ve always wanted to make a sophisticated caper/thriller in the style of ‘Topkapi,’ ‘To Catch A Thief’ and ‘The Hot Rock,’ with smart characters and sexy European backgrounds. When I read the script of ‘Risk’, I knew this was it.”
The movie is scheduled to go into production this summer, and it sounds like it could be a really cool movie.
