Jason Reitman and Nick Hornby are set to team up for a bank heist film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Men, Women & Children director and A Long Way Down novelist are adapting Skip Hollandsworth's Texas Monthly article I Only Rob Banks For My Family.

The story centres on the Catt family of Houston, who made a living robbing banks until their crimes caught up with them.

Ivan Reitman and Fox Searchlight will produce the project.
