’22 Jump Street’ Scribe to Pen DreamWorks’ ‘Heist’

Oren Uziel has been set to pen the DreamWorks thriller “Heist” with “Need For Speed” helmer Scott Waugh directing.

Steve Zaillian and Waugh are producing with Zaillian’s Film Rites partner Garrett Basch exec producing.

The original draft’s plot followed a man recruiting his brother to help him on a risky robbery, but this new version from Uziel may take different direction.

Besides “22 Jump Street,” Uziel is also developing a “Men in Black” reboot for Sony and is also penning “Overnight” for Disney.

He is repped by WME.
