Burning Down The House Feature Film In Planning Stages

Cheaper by the Dozen director Shawn Levy is in preliminary negotiations to direct the casino-set crime thriller 21, according to today's Hollywood Reporter.

The flick is based on the best-selling fact-based novel Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six M.I.T. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions, by Ben Mezrich. Levy's other directorial work includes Just Married, Big Fat Liar and the forthcoming Pink Panther flick.

21 will follow a group of students who were trained to become experts in card counting and subsequently took Vegas casinos for millions.

Kevin Spacey, who acquired the rights to the book in 2002, will produce. And while the trade doesn't mention it, when initial reports on the project first surfaced in 2002, Spacey was linked to the role of the students' ringleader, an M.I.T. professor.
