Yesterday, Deadline announced that Lionsgate is acquiring rights for the popular Ally Carter series, Heist Society. Below is an excerpt from the article:
Lionsgate is separately acquiring for Brownstone Heist Society, the Ally Carter bestseller about a woman who has been part of a larcenous family and tries to go straight. That ends when her father is suspected of stealing a mobster’s art collection and she and a friend have two weeks to steal back the artwork and get it back to the mobster. For Banks, both of these are producing projects only at this point, and she will produce with Handelman.
I've been waiting for one of Ally Carter's books to be made into a movie. They're just so amazing. And to get some amazing, official news like this is so exciting! Though, it'll be a while before any scripts, directors, casting, etc. are announced, it's still exciting for any Ally Carter fans.
