Abrams Plans A Diamond Heist

Dark Horizon is reporting that Paramount Pictures has bought film rights to "The Untold Story of the World's Biggest Diamond Heist" for JJ Abrams to potentially direct. The story is by Joshua Davis that appeared in Wired Magazine.

"The film will follow the true story of an unprecedented $100+ million diamond & gold heist in Belgium in early 2003 by a small group of Italian thieves who circumvented ten layers of security to access a vault beneath the Antwerp Diamond Center."

The movie will be produced by Abrams' Bad Robot company and currently no writer is attached nor is there a release date. Actually it isn't even 100% that Abrams will direct as he has multiple irons in the fire (Fringe, Star Trek, Morning Glory, etc).
