Phoenix Pictures and Robert Chartoff are teaming up with director Roger Donaldson to adapt the Seymour Reit book The Day They Stole the Mona Lisa, about the infamous theft of Leonardo da Vinci's prized portrait.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the book centers on the conman who masterminded the theft of the world's most famous painting from the Louvre in 1911. It was missing for more than two years before an Italian carpenter named Vincent Perugia showed up with the painting trying to sell it in Florence.

No production date has been set.
