Daniel Craig is being lined up to star in heist movie.
Scriptwriter Joe Penhall, who wrote ‘The Road’ and ‘The Proposition’ director John Hillcoat are currently working on an English-speaking remake of the French robbery movie ‘La Bonne Annee’ and are sculpting the script for Craig to take the lead.
If it goes ahead, the 41-year-old James Bond actor will play an ex-convict in the modern-day remake of the 1973 Claude Lelouch movie.
The project will follow his alter-ego as he hatches a plan to rob a luxurious jewellers in the French town Cannes.
This will not be the first time Penhall and the Hollywood star have worked together; in 2000 they collaborated for ‘Some Voices’ and again in 2004 for ‘Enduring Love’.
Hillcoat has also been in discussions with the British actor about working on a big-screen adaptation of ‘The Death of Bunny Munro’ based on a novel by Nick Cave about a sex-obsessed salesman.
