Steve Carell is attached to star in and produce Conviction

... a heist film that was bought as a spec script two years ago by Warner Bros and Silver Pictures.
The script by Jonathan Herman, which made the Black List, follows a mastermind bank robber
who serves five years in prison following a botched heist who is forced by an FBI agent to entrap
his protege as the upstart pulls off a multimillion-dollar job. The original script had a Heat tone,
but it stalled. It is being turned into an action comedy with a tone similar to 48 Hours and Ocean’s
Eleven, with Carell at its center.
