  • Mark Ruffalo is joining the cast of ‘Crime 101’.
  • Chris Hemsworth is co-starring in the movie.
  • Bart Layton is directing.

Don Winslow’s work has been the source for movies before, including 2007’s ‘Bobby Z’ and 2012’s ‘Savages’.

Yet right now, there is a feeding frenzy for his literary output, with a variety of movies and shows in development based on his books, including war on drugs tale ‘The Border’ and ‘City on Fire’, which has a script by ‘Challengers’ Justin Kuritzkes and ‘Dune: Part Two’ actor Austin Butler aboard to star and produce.

Add to the list Winslow’s novella ‘Crime 101’, which is in development with Chris Hemsworth starring. And his old Marvel pal Mark Ruffalo is now in talks to join him in the police thriller.

What’s the story of ‘Crime 101’?

Winslow’s latest chronicles a string of high-level jewel heists up and down the Pacific Coast Highway that have gone unsolved for years, mostly because the perpetrator has lived by a strict code he calls “Crime 101”.

Police attribute the thefts to the Colombian cartels, but Detective Lou Lubesnick’s gut says it’s the work of just one man. Now the lone-wolf jewel thief is looking for that fabled final last score, and Lou breaks all the rules of the perp’s idea.

There are no details yet as to which roles the two stars could be playing, but we could picture Hemsworth (who is also one of the movie’s producers) as the thief and Mark Ruffalo as the cop.

Pedro Pascal was originally looking to star with Hemsworth, but his busy schedule has forced him to bow out.
