Jeff Wadlow will direct and co-wrote the action heist film "Hail to the Thief" for Focus Features
Jeff Wadlow says "Hail to the Thief," an upcoming action genre for which he has been tapped to direct with Beau Bauman co-wrote the script.
The story of the film centers on a bank robber who uses the 2004 George W. Bush/John Kerry Iowa primary showdown to outfox a distracted police force.
Loosely based on three similar bank robberies that happened on the same night Bush and Democratic opponent Kerry hosted dueling campaign parties in August 2004, this new fictional caper weaves in elements of political satire as it follows one novice criminal's quest to outfox an overwhelmed Iowan police force and rob several banks with his equally amateurish friends.
