According to The Hollywood Reporter, Zoë Kravitz has officially signed on to star in the film adaptation of Leyna Krow’s The Sundance Kid Might Have Some Regrets. Warner Bros. Pictures successfully acquired the rights to the heist thriller project following a competitive bidding war.
The Sundance Kid Might Have Some Regrets is short story written by Leyna Krow. It is described as a redefining of the heist genre centering around twins — one with supernatural powers and one without, who are bank robbers.
In the film, “one twin is named Maggie, who is the brains and the brawn with her telekinesis, super-strength, language fluency, invincibility and more, while the narrator is the self-appointed face of the operation,” reads the synopsis. “This twin will follow Maggie every step of the way, but when their newest venture goes awry, she begins to have a second thoughts about the life they lead, especially when the gunfire starts to hail on her and her impenetrable sister.”
In addition to starring, Zoë Kravitz will also be producing along with Matt Jackson. Joanne Lee is serving as the executive producer.
Kravitz most recently starred as Selina Kyle/ Catwoman in Matt Reeves’ blockbuster film The Batman. She is expected to reprise the role in the already announced sequel to the Robert Pattinson-led DC film. She is currently working on the preproduction for her feature directorial debut Pussy Island, which will be led by Naomi Ackie and Channing Tatum.
