Pulitzer prize winner Stephen Adly Guirgis will adapt the play from Frank Pierson's Oscar-winning script, about a botched bank hold-up which is based on true events.

Executives did not share any further details about the project.

Pacino is currently performing on Broadway starring in David Mamet's new play China Doll.
