Kerrigan to redo ‘Thieves’

Sarkissian, Fox, Sussman to produce

Warner Independent Pictures has set filmmaker Lodge Kerrigan to write and direct “Thieves,” an English-language remake of French film “Les Voleurs.”

Arthur Sarkissian, Jennifer Fox and Peter Sussman are producing.

Set in New Orleans, “Thieves” tells the story of a police detective who is the black sheep of his family, a band of criminals.

Filmmaker Andre Techine directed the 1996 French original, which starred Daniel Auteuil and Catherine Deneuve.

Kerrigan arrived on the indie scene in 1994 with psychodrama “Clean, Shaven,” the story of a schizophrenic man trying to get his daughter back. He next made “Claire Dolan,” which was nominated for the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or.

A decade after “Clean, Shaven,” Kerrigan made the critically acclaimed “Keane,” also about a schizophrenic and his daughter, but with a different twist.

Between “Claire” and “Keane,” Kerrigan directed “In God’s Hands,” starring Peter Sarsgaard and Maggie Gyllenhaal and exec produced by Steven Soderbergh.

Pic had all but completed shooting when a lab destroyed the negative.

Upcoming releases at Warner Independent include “Rails & Ties,” Paul Haggis’ “In the Valley of Elah” and docu “The 11th Hour,” narrated and produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, which had its world preem at Cannes last week.
