Odd Lot will redo ‘Mob’

Ealing original starred Guiness as clerk-turned-thief

Odd Lot Entertainment has acquired remake rights to “The Lavender Hill Mob,” with Dean Parisot attached to direct.

Produced by the Ealing Studios in 1951 and directed by Charles Crichton (“A Fish Called Wanda”), “The Lavender Hill Mob” features Alec Guinness as a mild-mannered bank clerk who comes up with a plan to steal a fortune in gold bullion from his employer.

David Sussman will adapt the screenplay. His credits include “Locked & Upright” at Lions Gate Films and the adaptation of “Being Alexander” at New Line Cinema.

Ealing contract writer T.E.B. Clarke penned the original script, which won an Academy Award. Guinness’ role earned the actor the first Oscar nom of his career.

Odd Lot acquired the rights from StudioCanal.

Parisot is currently directing another remake, “Fun With Dick and Jane,” for Columbia Pictures.
