The film, written by John Aboud and Michael Colton follow “a thief and her ex-boyfriend who stage a fake wedding at New York City’s Natural History Museum — with plans to rob it during the ceremony.”
Gluck has been attached to an insane amount of projects, including Sex on the Moon (from the author whose work gave us The Social Network), the action comedies Secretaries Day and Skyjack, and a drama that has nothing to do with Radiohead despite its title — not to mention the various film we have no knowledge of. Hopefuly the up-and-comer decides one soon, as they all sound like passable options.
