Borenstein has just turned in his script for Art of the Steal for Warner Bros. and is already familiar with Legendary Pictures, having worked on the company’s in-development Jimi Hendrix biopic Jimi and he also re-wrote Legendary’s supernatural fantasy The Seventh Son based on Joseph Delaney’s young adult book.
