William Monahan, the writer of The Departed (Filmstalker review) and Edge of Darkness, is set to direct a crime story called The Art of the Heist: Confessions of a Master Thief, Rock-and-Roller and Prodigal Son (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com), although the film will most likely have a shorter title than the yet to be published memoirs of Myles Connor. Connor was an art connoisseur and rock musician whose band once backed Roy Orbison, however at the same time he was an accomplished art and antiques thief who successfully robbed a number of museums in Boston in the seventies and eighties. The story comes from Variety

Justin Marks is to rewrite 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo, the remake of the Disney classic that McG is to direct. The hope is that this origin tale of Captain Nemo will spark a franchise for Disney. Justin Marks has He-Man, Voltron, Street Fighter and Green Arrow under his writing belt. The story comes from Variety.

Darren Bousman, the director of Saw, is to direct a heist thriller called Akula which will be produced by Jeremy Bolt and Paul W.S. Anderson. The film is billed through Variety as a dark thriller set on a submarine, perhaps hence the title of the film.
