#TessaThompson has found her next big project, starring as the notorious jewelry thief #DorisPayne!

Thompson, who is best known for #ThorRagnarok, #Creed, and #Westworld, will also produce the heist film with #CodeblackFilms' #JeffClanagan.

The 34-year-old actress took to Twitter to confirm the news:
"After chasing Doris and her story for years- and then keeping this secret for awhile- I'm screaming that this dream is coming true. She is a deeply fascinating woman. So pleased to bring this story to the screen with CodeBlack & Lionsgate. Beyond grateful."
.
According to Variety, the movie is 'conceived as a high-concept action-drama in the vein of #CatchMeIfYou Can and #TheThomasCrownAffair.' If you loved both of these films then here's your #mustwatch upcoming movie! Stay tuned!
#7Watchlist

In 2013, a documentary was made based on Payne's life called The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne. Payne, now 87, would enter jewelry stores posing as a well-to-do woman looking for a diamond ring and ask to see an assortment of items. Using her charm, she would eventually cause the clerk to forget how many pieces were outside the cases and leave with one or two pieces.

Actress #tessathompson has signed on to portray notorious jewel thief #dorispayne .

For those who may not know how notorious Payne was she stole jewelry without getting caught for six decades!
The Now 87 year old would enter jewelry stores posing as a regular well to do woman and ask to see assorted jewelry items. Using her sweet charm she would cause the sales clerk to forget how many pieces was in the cases which lead her to leaving the store with a few items. Payne's criminal record dates all the way back to the 1950s.

Tessa took to her #twitter account to announce the news, "After chasing Doris and her story for year---and then keeping this secret for a while---I'm screaming that this is dream is coming true. She is a deeply fascinating woman. So pleased to bring this story to the screen with #CodeBlack and #Lionsgate . Beyond grateful." Congrats to Tessa and we look forward to seeing how well she'll portray her on the big screen.

#tessathompson to play #dorispayne international jewel thief #codeblackfilms #codeblackmovie

Tessa Thompson has signed on to portray Doris Payne, a woman who gained notoriety for her luxury jewelry heists from stores around the world.

Thompson, whose credits include “Thor: Ragnarok,” “Creed,” and “Westworld,” will also produce the currently untitled film with Codeblack Films’ Jeff Clanagan. Codeblack is launching the project after having obtained Payne’s life rights.

The film is conceived as a high-concept action-drama in the vein of “Catch Me if You Can” and “The Thomas Crown Affair.” Codeblack Films’ Candice Wilson will oversee the project.

In her six-decade long career, Payne, who is now 87, would enter jewelry stores posing as a well-to-do woman looking for a diamond ring and ask to see an assortment of items. Using her charm, she would eventually cause the clerk to forget how many pieces were outside the cases and leave with one or two pieces.

Payne’s criminal record dates back to the 1950s. She was arrested many times and has admitted to having used 20 aliases, 10 Social Security numbers, and nine dates of birth.

Payne was the subject of a 2013 documentary, “The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne,” where she described in detail many of her crimes, from the earliest thefts in her youth, up to her arrest in 2011 for stealing a diamond ring from a Macy’s department store. The trial for this crime was chronicled in the documentary, and her last interview in the film took place in prison.

Codeblack Films, which is part of Lionsgate, also has an Angela Davis biopic in active development. Its drama “Traffik” — starring Paula Patton, Omar Epps, Roselyn Sanchez, and Laz Alonso — opens April 27.

While many know her as the notorious alleged international jewel thief portrayed in a Netflix documentary and endless new stories, I found Doris Payne to be charming, engaging and graceful. Thrilled to convince the court to grant her probation and release her from jail in the SAME day! #DorisPayne
