Scott Waugh is in negotiations to helm a currently untitled heist thriller at Dreamworks.

Although plot details are being held under wraps, we know that the project will follow a man that is forced to recruit crazy brother for help with an impossible heist. The story is based on an original idea from The Shield's John Hlavin.

Scott Waugh also directed Act of Valor and produced a Danny Way documentary titled Waiting for Lighting. He is currently directing the EA racing game adaptation Need for Speed, which stars Aaron Paul and Dakota Johnson. That project will hit theaters March 14, 2014.

No production details have been released.
