Drew Barrymore to Direct, Produce 'Heist Society'

Jun 30, 2011 | 1:20pm EDT

ALTDrew Barrymore is set to enter Twilight territory. Which doesn't mean she's starring in an angsty vampire movie but rather that she'll be directing and producing the big-screen adaptation of a young-adult novel: Heist Society.

The novel, by Ally Carter, tells the story of young woman who returns to a life of crime (i.e., thievery) in order to help bail her father out of an art-heist jam.

Barrymore will reportedly direct Heist Society -- which will reunite her with Whip It (her last directorial outing) screenwriter Shauna Cross -- after fulfilling her obligation to helm How to Be Single.
