About the project

Producer states: "'The Pineville Heist' is based on the screenplay by Todd Gordon & Lee Chambers. Script consultants included a (former) Senior VP of Production at Universal Pictures and the author of "The Screenwriter's Bible."

"With its slick plot and rapid-fire cinematic rhythm, you'll read Chambers' bloody Boy's Own thriller in one sitting. School's never been more deadly - or more fun."
