Director Dito Montiel (who helmed The Son of No One ) is working on Empire State, an upcoming heist drama movie based on script penned by Adam Mazer. The film is inspired from the true story of a 1982 NYC armored car company robbery thought at the time to be the largest cash heist in U.S. history. The film is starring Liam Hemsworth, Dwayne Johnson, Emma Roberts, Chris Diamantopoulos, Nikki Reed and Michael Angarano. The release date of Empire State is set for June 10, 2013.
Plot: "Empire State is a drama centered on two childhood friends who plan to rob an armored car depository, and the NYPD officer who stands in their way."
Like we said, the plot of Empire State is based on a real-life event: in 1982, $11 million disappeared from the offices of the Sentry Armored Car Courier Company in the Bronx in New York. It was thought to be the biggest cash theft in U.S. history at the time. But authorities later said that a considerable amount of the money had been actually embezzled by insiders.
