Following her first directorial experience with Whip It back in 2009, it appears Drew Barrymore's back for more. This time she's nabbed herself another potential gig with caper movie The Heist Society. According to Empire Online, Barrymore's already in line to produce the flick but now it's reported she wants in on another chance to shout 'ACTION!' at the cast. I'm sure she'll get her way.
The Heist Society is based on the book by the same title by Ally Carter which Warner Bros allegedly bagsied the rights to last year, and have since been busy developing into an adaptation. The Heist Society will see Barrymore come together again with Whip It screenwriter, Shauna Cross for a script that follows a teenage girl who must learn to juggle her family's criminal shenanigans with the dramas of high school life.
As Empire Online reveal, the plot goes like this: said teenage girl has to think fast to put a crew together in order to track down and steal back a powerful gangster's art collection which her father was accused of robbing in the first place.
Although, as Barrymore is also in line to direct a movie called How To Be Single for New Line which she agreed to back in March, there's a chance that Heist Society might be dumped. It's likely to transpire that whichever project proves most popular and profitable come the time to shoot, will get the green light.
