Thief Film Plans

The Tracking Board reports on plans for a film adaptation of the Thief series of stealthy, larcenous action games (thanks PCGamesN). Here's word on the project and the pedigree of the people behind it:

Vertigo and Prime Universe are developing a movie based on THIEF, the seminal stealth action video game from Looking Glass Studios and Eidos Interactive. Adrian Askarieh and Roy Lee are producing.

“Thief” is not the first stealth game that Prime Universe has adapted. Askarieh produced the 2007 film “Hitman,” starring Timothy Olyphant and Olga Kurylenko, based on the video game of the same name. A reboot entitled “Hitman: Agent 47″ is currently in production. Vertigo, meanwhile, is coming off its own successful adaptation, “The Lego Movie,” which grossed almost half a billion dollars worldwide and met with enormous acclaim from audiences and critics alike.
