Darren Lemke will write the latest live-action film adaptation of the classic educational video game and animated TV Show "Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?" says Heat Vision.
The story follows the ACME agency’s greatest detective Carmen Sandiego having become the world’s greatest thief, so it’s up to her former partner to follow her clues and track her down. Their cat-and-mouse game leads the partner to confront a greater mystery: Is Carmen really a thief or a hero?"
The film will be "National Treasure" meets "The Thomas Crown Affair" in tone.
Jennifer Lopez, Benny Medina, Simon Fields, Nick Osbourne, Trevor Engelson and Devin Andre will produce with Lopez tipped to star.
Disney had optioned the film rights back in the late 1990s starring Sandra Bullock, but that project never materialized
