Adrian Lyne will direct the thriller, Prince of Thieves for Warner Bros. Pictures.

The film is an adaptation of Chuck Hogan's novel that is the tale of four men - thieves, rivals and friends - being hunted through the streets of Boston, says The Hollywood Reporter. That is until a tenacious FBI agent and a woman who might destroy them all.

Sheldon Turner will be writing the screenplay; no word on a production schedule for Prince of Thieves.
