Director Danny Boyle is heading back into the world of thievery. After taclking art heists with this year’s Trance, Variety reports that the Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire filmmaker has signed on to direct a feature film adaptation of the documentary Smash & Grab: The Story of the Pink Panthers for Pathe and Fox Searchlight. The documentary revolves around the international jewel trade, specifically focusing on successful diamond thieves. After seeing the documentary, Boyle apparently became interested in turning it into a narrative feature and approached Fox Searchlight about the project. No plot details are given and a screenwriter has yet to be attached, but it sounds like this may be the director’s next project.
Boyle took a break from feature filmmaking last year to helm the London Olympics Opening Ceremony, but he has spoken recently about the prospect of finally making a sequel to Trainspotting. Last we heard, his plan was to reassemble the original cast and have the film in theaters by 2016. My fingers are very tightly crossed for that to pan out. Hit the jump to watch the trailer for director Havana Marking’s 2013 documentary Smash & Grab.
