Universal Pictures is set to adapt the 1968 ABC series It Takes a Thief for a feature film. Variety reports that Greg Russo will write the screenplay based on the original show, which followed cat burglar Alexander Mundy (Robert Wagner) as he agrees to work for the United States Secret Intelligence Agency in exchange for his release from prison.
The film will be produced by John Davis and Joseph Singer; it is the latest '60s spy series to hit the big screen following Mission: Impossible, Get Smart and The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
