The film will be based on an as-yet unpublished book by Jonas Bonnier , and it was Gyllenhaal Nine Stories who came up with the idea to adapt the work for large screens.
The original tells the story of what was dubbed the Swedish "robbery of the century." In September 2009, in the suburbs of Stockholm, a gang of criminals staged a theft with a helicopter - savvy hijackers landed on the roof of a money vault and took out more than $ 5 million from there. The whole operation took about half an hour, and the police who arrived at the scene could not prevent the criminals.
Future projects for Netflix include the dramedy War Machine, starring Brad Pitt, and David Eyre's Bright, starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton. As for Gyllenhaal , he will hit the big screens at the end of the year in the thriller Under Cover of Night.
