The High Concept:
The bank job is an overdone crime staple for sure, but hear this one out. In this script, the small-town heist acts as a catalyst before the sprawling narrative gradually reveals how so many of the townspeople, from various backgrounds, are implicated in the crime to differing degrees.
Scene We'd Like To See:
If the whole story is based around it, the heist itself would have to be pretty spectacular. This set-up feels like it's screaming out for something brutally intimate and frighteningly realistic.
Ben Affleck did a very decent job on
. The territory could be too similar perhaps, but we'd be happy to see him get his hands dirty on another scintillating crime drama.
Well, seeing as Affleck recently directed himself to one of his best performances for an extremely long time, we wouldn't be against him casting himself again.
