Drew Barrymore Set To Direct Young Adult Thriller
Posted on Thu Jun 30, 2011 04:16 PM PDT

BarrymoreDirecting200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) -- Drew Barrymore will produce and direct a movie based on the young adult novel Heist Society.

Warner Bros won a multi-studio bidding war for the book by Ally Carter. The story is a young woman who comes from a family of thieves but leaves her life behind, until her father needs her help. The studio is aging the characters a bit -- to their early 20s.

Barrymore is working with the same screenwriter who wrote Whip It, her well-reviewed directorial debut that starred Ellen Page and Kristen Wiig.
