At least six men were part of the heist, which was thought to be masterminded by UFC competitor "Lightning" Lee Murray. "The story is a very unique British heist tale with colorful London characters. I've always wanted to shoot in England and Kerry is the perfect writer to bring authenticity to this outrageous true bank job," said Aronofsky. Originally, the film was also going to focus on Murray's life.
It was only a matter of time. I love heist flicks, so I am pretty damn excited for this.
