According to The Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox has picked up an untitled adventure project from screenwriter Christian Forte that Mikkel Bondesen will produce.

The story is described as a lighthearted caper about a group of men in prison who use their incarceration as the perfect alibi when they conspire to steal a stash of diamonds.

Forte's credits include writing Albino Alligator for Miramax. "Alligator" was directed by Kevin Spacey and starred Matt Dillon, Faye Dunaway, Gary Sinise and Viggo Mortensen.
