Hatton Garden: Fourth heist drama planned
Timothy Spall is to star in ITV's dramatisation of the £25m Hatton Garden safety deposit box jewellery raid.
The drama follows a slew of dramatic interest in the heist, after two films and a radio play about how the thieves broke into the vault.
Larry Lamb and Phil Daniels starred in a big screen version released in April, while Michael Caine and Ray Winstone will star in another upcoming film.
A cartoon also appeared on the BBC News website last year.
The robbery took place in London's diamond district, carried out by a gang of career criminals who drilled three 25cm holes through a concrete wall to climb into the vault.
Spall, who won best actor at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival for Mr Turner, will star alongside Kenneth Cranham in four 60-minute episodes.
Jeff Pope, ITV Studios' head of factual drama, said: "This is one of the most high-profile crimes of the last decade and we wanted to understand what had happened - and why it had happened.
"The research threw up some fascinating detail and blew away many of the misconceptions about this story. It was not about a bunch of 'loveable old blokes', many box holders lost everything in the raid and we will reflect this.
"But the planning was clever and the characters involved unique."
