Story centers on the theft of the lost Leonardo da Vinci painting “The Battle of Anghiari” and involves two rival master thieves hired to go to Florence to track down the painting. The experts use high-tech and old tricks to prove the painting exists and pinpoint its location, hidden behind another masterpiece.

Michael Nathanson, Joseph Farrell and Catherine Paura will produce along with Alcon toppers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.

The producers have just completed making “Joyful Noise” with Alcon. “Noise,” starring Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah, is set for a January release via Warners.

Twohy also penned “The Fugitive,” “Pitch Black” and “G.I. Jane.”

Twohy is represented by ICM and attorney Mark Temple.
