Borenstein set to write ‘Art’ pic

Zac Efron stars in Warner Bros. thriller

Max Borenstein will write the thriller “Art of the Steal” for Warner Bros.

Zac Efron is attached to star and is producing the pic with Jason Barrett, Kevin McCormick and David Klawans.

“Steal” is based on Joshuah Bearman’s Wired magazine article. Efron and Barrett are producing through their Warner-based Ninjas Runnin’ Wild banner and McCormick through his Warner-based Langley Park shingle.

Story centers on a con man who plans and executes a series of elaborate heists, all while leading a double life as an upstanding citizen.

Borenstein is also penning Warner Bros.’ feature adaptation of the spy drama “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” His script “Jimi,” a biopic about Jimi Hendrix, was on the Blacklist last year and is set up at Legendary Pictures.
