Oct 24, 2016  •  Post A Comment

NBC has a new project in the works that’s an adaptation of a popular Robert Redford movie. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the network gave a script order to a reboot of the 1992 hacker feature “Sneakers.”

Walter Parkes, who co-wrote the feature, is behind the new project.

“The feature film, a comedic caper, starred Robert Redford and Ben Kingsley as college students who hack into computer networks using university equipment in a bid to redistribute conservative funds to liberal causes,” THR notes. “The movie explores their diverging paths and ultimate reunion as one goes the organized crime route while the other works with law enforcement.”

The NBC project comes from Universal Television, with Parkes and his wife and producing partner Laurie MacDonald to executive produce and Tom Szentgyorgyi on board to write the script.
