The Robber, a German film released only last year, will be adapted for American audiences and rumor has it that one of young Hollywood’s biggest up and comers Andrew Garfield may star in it.
The film follows athlete Johann Retenberger who starts robbing banks as a hobby to fulfill his need for an adrenaline rush. The original focused more on the mystery behind the real life character, omitting personal details of his life that producer Laura Ziskin will include in the American version. Garfield has expressed interest in playing the lead and with Ziskin, who is also producing Garfield in The Amazing Spider-Man, it is almost certain he will have the role.
Robber is still on standby as producers are still looking for a writer.
