'Heist Society,' Ally Carter

Studio: Warner Bros. Story: For as long as she can remember, Katarina has been a part of the family business--thieving. When Kat tries to leave "the life" for a normal life, her old friend Hale conspires to bring her back into the fold. Why? A mobster's art collection has been stolen, and Kat's father is the only suspect. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat's dad needs her help. The only solution is to find the paintings and steal them back. Kat's got two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in her family's history--and, with any luck, steal her life back along the way. Attached: Drew Barrymore has signed on to produce and direct.
