Fukunaga Helms Crazy-Sounding Civil War Heist For Focus

I like heist movies, I like hearing my friends’ stories about how strange Civil War reenactments are. So I’m totally digging the idea of a Civil War heist film. Director Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre) will helm Focus Features‘ No Blood, No Guts, No Glory. Score another four points for a badass title. Or “four score,” if you will, and if you’re groaning in front of your screen, I assume you probably won’t.

The film is a fictionalized account of a real life commando mission, in which 20 soldiers and a spy snuck into Georgia for a good ol’ fashioned Southern stealin’. Will they pull off their mission and bring a swift end to the Civil War? This brings up another interesting question: how do you pull off a heist without a computer expert? Every heist film has one. Maybe the computer expert will be really good at abacuses or something.

Fukunaga is co-writing the Black Listed script with Dune remake writer Chase Palmer. (Variety)
