DreamWorks has set Oren Uziel to script Heist, a thriller that has Need For Speed helmer Scott Waugh attached to direct. It’s considered a project with a strong lead role. Uziel has been writing up a storm. His genre mashup script Kitchen Sink is now in postproduction at Sony, where he has been drafting the Men In Black reboot and where he also scripted the upcoming sequel 22 Jump Street. Uziel most recently came aboard Overnight, the Disney-based Home Alone-in-a-toy-store project that has Ruben Fleischer directing (though I hear that might be a bit tenuous). He’s repped by WME, Circle Of Confusion and attorney David Fox.
