Antal leads heist gang in 'Armored'


On the eve of his English-language debut "Vacancy," Nimrod Antal has signed on to helm another Screen Gems thriller, "Armored."

Based on a screenplay by James V. Simpson, the story centers on a young armored car guard who is persuaded by his veteran cohorts to empty the truck of its $10 million haul.

Although Screen Gems is eyeing a fall start date, it is unclear whether "Armored" will be Antal's next project.

The film will be produced by Buckaroo Entertainment partners Sam Raimi and Josh Donen and Dan Farah of Farah Films & Management.

Screen Gems topper Clint Culpepper and exec Eric Paquette will oversee the project.

Antal, who directed the critically acclaimed Hungarian film "Kontroll," most recently directed the Kate Beckinsale-Luke Wilson starrer "Vacancy," which opens Friday.

He is repped by CAA and attorney Warren Dern.
