Roger Donaldson Strolling Down "Baker Street"

Bank Job, The picture


Australian-born helmer Roger Donaldson has been tapped to direct "Baker Street" for Arclight Films.

Submitting another directorial stint into his burgeoning resume, Roger Donaldson has come on board to helm Arclight Films' "Baker Street", which is based on a true story of the legendary 1971 Baker Street bank robbery.

Slated to start filming early next year in the U.K with Jason Statham starring, the thriller project depicts how one of the biggest robberies in British history took place with no arrests ever made, nor money ever recovered. Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais have both been assigned to work on the screenplay while Steve Chasman and Charles Roven are set to produce.

Donaldson, the co-founder of New Zealand 's Film Commission, last directed "The World's Fastest Indian" starring Oscar-winning actor Anthony Hopkins. His past helming credits include "The Getaway", "Thirteen Days", and "The Recruit."
