'XOXO' Writer to Rewrite 'Heist Society' for Lionsgate, Elizabeth Banks' Brownstone (Exclusive)

Lionsgate's female-fronted art-thief movie, Heist Society, is getting a rewrite.

The long in-development project, which is being produced by Elizabeth Banks and husband Max Handelman's Brownstone Productions, has tapped Dylan Meyer to take a second pass at the script.

Heist Society -  an adaptation of Ally Carter's best-selling novel of the same name - follows a young woman who comes from a family of art thieves and tries to go straight, only to get pulled back into the family "business." 

Lionsgate, which optioned Carter's best-selling novel back in 2013, declined to comment. 

Meyer is an up-and-coming screenwriter who penned Netflix's recently released EDM-inspired original film XOXO starring Sarah Hyland. She also currently has a project in development at HBO.

Meyer is repped by WME, Beam and Hansen Jacobson.
