Tessa Thompson to Star as Doris Payne in Jewelry Heist Movie

Oh, yes. Yes, we would very much like to see Tessa Thompson in such a film. Her method would usually involve her entering high-end stores and posing as a wealthy woman looking for a diamond ring.

Payne has become somewhat a folk hero among thieves and others for her long life of crime, which has been the subject of a 2014 documentary, 'The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne, ' available for viewing on iTunes.

In addition to leading the charge, Thompson will produce the movie alongside Codeblack Films' Jeff Clanagan, the keeper of Payne's life rights.

According to Variety, the now untitled film, which is being compared to Catch Me If You Can and The Thomas Crown Affair, comes from Codeblack Films. The rising star was a scene stealer as Valkyrie in last year's Thor: Ragnarok and will be seen this year in the Sundance hit Sorry To Bother You and Alex Garland's Annihilation.

The actress starred as Valkyrie in "Thor: Ragnarok" and is set to reprise her role in the upcoming "Avengers: Infinity War" movie, but she admitted she can not wait to see what happens with the strong women in the MCU.

We can not wait to see what Tessa Thompson does with this.

Thompson also insists it is "culturally important" to represent people of colour in the MCU.

Her background is an important part of her story. It's important to me. So don't mind me, I'm just gonna get in line now. In July 2015 she was reportedly stealing again and was believed to have stolen a $33,000 (US) ring, although this has not been proven yet.
