  • Drew Barrymore has signed on to produce the young adult thriller "Heist Society", that Warner Bros is developing.

  • Barrymore will also oversee the script, to be written by Shauna Cross, and is also considering directing the project.
    Based on Ally Carter's novel, the story follows a young woman named Katarina Bishop who hails from an extended family of cat burglars and master thieves. The girl leaves her illicit life behind, but when her father is the prime suspect in the case of a mobster's missing art collection, she assembles a crew to track down the art and steal it back.

  • The young woman will not be a teen but rather be in her 20s in the film.
