Director Danny Boyle is set to direct another heist film. This one is called Smash and Grab, and it's based on the documentary called Smash & Grab: The Story of the Pink Panthers. The story "revolves around the world’s most successful diamond thieves who take the audience into the dark world of the international jewel trade." Here's the synopsis for the the doc.
The Pink Panthers are the world's most successful jewel thieves. With incredible unprecedented access, gang members Mike and Lela reveal the gang’s networks, history and human story. Playing out like a noir thriller and using cutting edge animation, the film keeps a Hollywood-style heist at its centre. We also follow the global police forces determined to stop them - with increasing success. But beneath the glitz and excitement of the heists lie the dark truths of the illicit diamond trade and the war-shattered ruins of the Balkan states.
Boyle most recently directed the heist film Trance, which was amazing. The director must really enjoy the genre. Some of Boyle's other films include Trainspotting, Sunshine, 28 Days Later, and 127 Hours. I love Boyle's films, and I'm excited to see what he has planned for this one.
