Goldrush Entertainment’s Eric Gozlan will produce the film, with Josh Duhamel executive producing alongside Highland Film Group’s Arianne Fraser and Delphine Perrier, Wenman, and Ungar. 

Read the full premise below: 

After escaping a Michigan prison, a daring career criminal assumes a new identity in Canada, marries the love of his life, then goes on to rob 59 banks and jewelry stores while a rogue task force sets out to take him down. Based on the incredible true story.

Bandit will begin production in 2021.
