Stone Village Prods. has netted a couple of Academy Award-winning scribes for two of its high-profile projects.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ron Bass has been tapped to adapt the Nicholas Sparks best-seller True Believer, while Bo Goldman is writing the adaptation of the remake of the 1955 heist film Rififi.
The supernatural love story Believer follows a writer for Scientific American who debunks myths and frauds but finds himself questioning his cynicism when he travels to a small town in North Carolina and falls for the granddaughter of the town psychic.
Rififi tells the story of a career thief who, upon leaving prison, discovers his wife has left him and finds himself returning to crime with a planned jewelry store heist. The remake will reteam Al Pacino with director Walt Becker, both of who worked together in Sea of Love and City Hall. Steindorff is producing, while Stone Village exec Scott Lastaiti will co-produce.
